Basically this is an AP Mount (600e) but are the electronics Zeiss or AP? What are the difference if the electronics are different.

The faceplate on the mount looks the same as on the AP600E QMD (even the connectors look the same) so it is likely that the electronics in the mount (which is basically the stepper motor driver) is the same.

 

The photo I found on Astromart of a PaMont hand controller looks like an AP 8010 (this ad - https://astromart.co...pamont-ii-6389)

 

I have both an AP 8010 and 9000 hand controller, both work with the 600E QMD motor controller, but the 8010 as far as I know doesn't have PEC and the autoguide port is not ST4.
