Ademco vista XM compared to Vista XT

I have a ADEMCO Vista 5130XM system. IS the ADEMCO Vista 5130XT compatible or interchangeable with my old system.

The quick answer is "No", but whether you can replace your existing 5130XM with a 5130XT depends on what peripherals you have on your existing system, and how many and what kinds of zones you now have.

Download yourself copies of the Installation Manuals for both Control Panels:

5130XM:

5130XT:
http://www.info-techs.com/ademco/fil...n/5130xtii.pdf

The main differences between the XM and XT variants seem to be that, while both panels have a basic 9 hardwired zones on the panel itself, the XM can be expanded to as many as 64 zones, using 2-wire multiplex (hardwired expansion) and/or wireless (RF) expansion modules; but the XT can only be expanded by 8 more multiplex zones, total of 17 zones.

So if your existing system has more than 17 zones, OR If you have wireless devices in your existing system (including wireless keypad or panic button), then you can't use the XT panel to replace your 5130XM.
If you have 17 or fewer all-hardwired zones, you may be able to use the XT.

I don't know what you mean by "stations". If you mean zones, like a door or window or motion sensor, you'd need to know if any of them are wireless. Do you have any devices, other than the Panel, for which you have to change batteries every year or so?

A picture of any sensor with a zone number above 9 might be helpful.
