The fence is of similar design to the Biesemeyer table saw fence which has been used on professional/industrial table saws since the 70's. I think the company (Biesemeyer) started out as an after market upgrade to saw manufacturer's designs - and fairly soon after, different manufacturers either licensed or copied the design for their own saw models. Delta, General, Powermatic and other brands have all had their versions. There really would not be an "upgrade" to this fence, as it's already deemed to be the best design.
Nice on the dust collection upgrade. I was thinking, based on Internet searches that it looked like one of the fences that folks would upgrade to, but I wasn't sure. That's good to know. I suspect it's cheaper to get the fence with the saw as part of an upgrade package than to do an aftermarket upgrade. It would also eliminate the need to fit the fence to the saw or whatever is required with aftermarket upgrades.
