Is it possible to use 800xA for Freelance With Compact HMI?
I can see that is possible to integrate Freelance 2013 Controllers with 800xA with out a problem ("800xA 6.0 for Freelance"). Can I use this tool with Compact HMI? Would I get the same advantages as with 800xA (Automatic tag Import, for example) ?
Or the only way is to use PLC connect with Freelance OPC?,In this case is it better to use generic OPC (2PAA110434R09) or OPC for Extended Automation (2PAA110435R09)?
Would I Get Alarms and Event (OPC A&E) in any of the two cases?

Your questions are mainly related to licenses
800xA 6.0 for Freelance is a license addition that is only compatible with 800xA, not for Compact HMI.
The use of the Connectivity software 800xA for Freelance in 800xA requires OPC for Extended Automation license on Freelance site.
In case you want to connect Freelance with Compact HMI, generic OPC license is enough
OPC Server for Freelance supports DA and AE
