It's the size of an element and not the array size. Size of INT -> 2, DINT -> 4, STRING -> 16, STRING[32] -> 32, ...
e.g. ANY_ARRAY_STRING := Array[1..10]_OF_STRING[32]

2  Compatibility rules

2.1  Table 1 Unity Pro Versions and PLC OS compatibility 

This table gives the application version created with the different Unity Pro versions.

Application version corresponds to the processor OS version displayed in Unity Pro configuration screen.

The OS version corresponds to the minimum version required to execute an application functional level.

Higher OS versions ensure compatibility with a lower application version.

As example: an application version V2.00 generated by Unity Pro V3.0 can be executed by a PLC OS version V2.30.
