Rotating axis 0 in 360 degrees for a 1000ppr quadrature encoder will result in a count of 4000 in the "ax0 / Encoder" cell. Rotate the motor back 360 degrees and the count should return to zero. Carry on turning 360 degrees and you will then read -4000 and 360 degrees back to zero. You would need to calculate these figures based on the actual encoder fitted.

*Note: 360 degrees relates to the motor shaft and does not account for any gearing

**Note: This checks encoder counts, it does not verify encoder direction.
