Yes, a number of ways. First, define your array as character length 4 (the
called program doesn't care that the calling program hasn't defined the
array as numeric) and initialise it to binary zeroes by moving low values
like this:

     E                    @BN        50  4
      *
     C                     MOVE *LOVAL    @BN

If you want to pass numeric values for which you know the decimal value
it's probably easiest to work through a data structure like this:

     I            DS
     I                                    B   1   40WRKBIN
     I                                        1   4 WRKHEX
      *
     C                     Z-ADD123       WRKBIN
     C                     MOVE WRKHEX    @BN,1
     C                     Z-ADD345       WRKBIN
     C                     MOVE WRKHEX    @BN,2

If you already know the hexadecimal key values you can move them straight
in as literals. The following achieves the same result as the code above:

     C                     MOVE X'007B'   @BN,1
     C                     MOVE X'0159'   @BN,2
