Questions about this item:

David M  will this work with a early model meade lx 200?
JOHN S  No, all these controllers are brand-specific and are not interchangeable.
Shopper  can this track the sun?
MARK C  iOptron's Solar System menu includes the Sun. Check out iOptron's user manual for the 8401 controller at the mfgr web site for more details (search iOptron 8401). Diatribe: Since a portable mount can be set in any orientation, removing the Sun from object databases will likely not condemn or absolve a mfgr from liability for eye damage that resulted from observing the Sun. Even a well-aligned mount that was last used to observe an object at or near the ecliptic (i.e., the planets) could have the Sun in its field of view later. The prudent safety approach is to place the proper warnings, but allow the mount to locate the Sun. Many people want to use special-purposed solar telescopes or properly filtered "night" scopes for solar observing, and mfgr's that omit the Sun from their databases need to reconsider their liability posture.
