Hi,
its actually the motion controller/BoB that does the probing, or least the time critical parts of it.
To my knowledge ALL the motion controller manufacturers have used ISIG_PROBE name of the
probe input pin.

DIGITIZE was a term that came from Mach3, I don't recall ever seeing it in Mach4 or any Mach4 documentation.

The probe input was named ISIG_DIGITIZE in earlier versions of Mach4, but was later renamed to ISIG_PROBE. This relates to G31.0. G31.1-3 are similarly now given the more intuitive names of ISIG_PROBE1 to ISIG_PROBE3.

These are defined in machine.ini
