Thorsten you are absolutely right. Saving to files is something I do not want at all. I do not want to care about file trasfer, storage size and I also think this is not good for CFast card in our PLCs even though it is industrial with lot of write cycles. I am looking for some clean "network" solution. I do not understand why it cannot be processed in MES. I am able to succesfuly send XML to MES and I do not know, why they are not able to process it somehow. Do you know someone from MES, who is able to help us with this request?

For our parts we measure some values during assembly cycle. Result of this measurement are 3 arrays [1..1200] of REAL values (eg. current, voltage, resistance). Our customer wants to save this data for every part that means 3600 values for every assebmly cycle. My question is how and were to store these data? I tried to add these arrays to PartProcessed > SendBody > Array and send it to MES. I only had to change send buffer size and library constant in TwinCAT and it works and all 3600 values are send. Then I was talking with colleague from MES team what is next step and he told me this. The values cannot be processed in MES, bacuse in Array section he expects only arrays of standard ResultDataXXX structures. I do not want to use array of ResultRealData, because I do not need other information like limits, unit typ, process name and with usage of this structure the size of date will be much large. MES database should not be used for storing of these big amount of data for every produced part. Is there any other solution how to deal with that request?
