Type the following in realterm (or whatever serial streaming software you are using):
stream-poscnt 1
data-stream-period 100

Then, make one complete revolution (turning the motor slowly by hand), noting the starting value for poscnt and the ending value for poscnt.

The difference between the 2 values for poscnt will be 4 times the resolution of your encoder.
