I purchased a used router table which came with a Mast-R-Lift and a Rockler Digital Master height gauge, and I can't find any documentation on the Rockler device. It seems to work but there's a probe type attachment that I can't figure out what it's for, although I assume it's for zeroing - see attached picture
Thanks

Rockler Digital Master

Essentially, the sensor attached to a sleeve fits over the router's height adjustment shaft. As you lower or raise the router the shaft rotates and turns the sensor. The system keeps track of how many turns and knowing the TPI of the screw converts number of turns to height.

By zeroing when the bit top is level to the table, you can set the bit height (depth of cut) precisely.

Thanks but there is already a rotary encoder mounted on the lift, which is providing lift height movement information - see pic below. There is a cable that links the encoder with the Digital Master
