Can somebody point me to a website / description that explains the difference between the older Z220 model and the current Z240 model ? A complete overview of the evolution of the strobe would be helpful....

check these out, not exactly what u want
uwphotographyguide.com/underwater-photography-strobes
www.uwphotographyguide.com/reviews-strobes-inon-z240

Biggest difference is the sensor, z240 is much more sensitive.
No pre flash with the z220(i think)
Very minor change in the guide level.

I asked because I saw some for sale. I looked a little bit further now, and there is doubt if the target light / lase would work (ikelite housing). It seems to be a bit finnicky with the target light and laser on non inon housings. probably wont buy them. I also read something about a recharging beep.....

maybe somebody else is interested

I believe the z220 has a focus light, the z220s does not. From the ebay page, it does look like a focus light. I wound not pay 350 for a strobe that old(but that is me)

I decided not to bid on them. I like the way my ds-51's work, but i did have some unexplained floods and thought maybe to switch to inons. (also to get a little wider).
