 The Encoders config window allows the user to fine-tune encoder settings. This window is typically not useful for simple tasks (such as using a rotary encoder to control overspeed, etc), as it allows for further finetuning of the encoder values. ​ The Encoders config window allows the user to fine-tune encoder settings.

-  * Encoder ​resolution ​for each particular encoder number. ​+  * Encoder ​Number Lines for each particular encoder ​- this allows to specify the total number ​of lines/​markings per one full rotation of the encoder wheel (note that this is different from the total pulses per one rotation, which would be specified in Settings > Config > Inputs/​Outputs/​Sensors > MPG through binary inputs)
   * The current encoder value is displayed on this screen. This is the fastest way to check if the encoder is connected/​working - for example, turning an MPG wheel handle should immediately change the current encoder value in this field for the selected encoder. ​   * The current encoder value is displayed on this screen.

-  * Mul coefficients ​(multiplication value) +  * Mul coefficients, as well as /​(2^Div) ​values. These Mul and Div coefficients are used due to the fact that the controller cannot handle floating number data in calculations,​ therefore it is necessary to first multiply and then divide a number by certain coefficients. They are used to bring the value of the encoder in line with the pulses/unit value specified in the Axes/Motors tab. Larger numbers allow to reduce the error. For example, if the ratio between the Axes/Motors value and the encoder pulse/unit value is 3.5, then the multiplication value (Mul) can be set to 7, while Div can be set to 1 (//2^1 =2, 7/2 = 3.5//​).  ​
