KP-3 Probe

I ordered and received a KP-3 probe this past week. I haven't installed yet. I downloaded the latest wiring drawings that are fresh today 11-21 and same probe with the same part number has 4 wires. The probe that i received has 3 wires. Help the poor boy out please. Thanks.

Re: ACORN Rev 4 Controller Board

Re: ACORN Rev 4 Controller Board

If I buy a ver4 Acorn could I move my Digitizing bundle from my old board to the new one or would I have to purchase a Digitizing bundle again?
