Upgrades are a major focus of Automation Interface, Ltd's business. Automation Interface, Ltd. can service, upgrade, and/or replace IDT or Eaton Operator Interface equipment systems from any source.


After 38 years of leadership, IDT (now known as the Eaton Operator Interface group) has more than 260,000 operator interface systems installed in automation applications around the World.


No one knows more about upgrading PanelMate systems and legacy IDT systems than we do.  With a minimum of 24 years of experience, our team actually designed, marketed, integrated, installed, and supported IDT systems including every model and generation of PanelMate and all other legacy IDT operator interface equipment.

We have the Eaton utilities to convert applications from any generation or brand of PanelMate equipment.  We also know all of the exceptions for certain applications and communication drivers and can make the additional changes necessary to provide a perfectly functioning conversion for our clients.


We can take your old system, extract the application, convert it, verify the new application, and then load it into your new system before shipping it to you.


We also have the utilities and cables that we can send to you to let you extract your own applications and ship or email them to us for conversion, installation, verification, and shipment of new systems to your site, ready for installation.



Automation Interface, Ltd. associates all came from IDT (now known as the Eaton Operator Interface Business Unit), the company that produced the ClassicMate II, ScreenLink, AMI-5000, AMI-6000, FactoryMate and the PanelMate family of products including the Modicon PanelMate Plus.


Automation Interface, Ltd. recognizes the need to provide an easy method for our clients to repair or modify their IDT equipment, obtain compatible systems for use as spares, and new systems with superior functionality that represent the state of the art in operator interface equipment.   Automation Interface, Ltd. also has the adaptor plates that are sometimes required to enable new PanelMate models to fit in existing control panels with little or no modification to the panels.
