Hi Vipul

Encoders will not give reference. They are supposed to tell you the RPM of the motor by the pulses that are generated at a particular speed of the motor. E.g. If your encoder is rated for 1024 PPR which means in one revolution of the encoder shaft/motor shaft , you will get 1024 pulses. You can check with an Oscilloscope to see if you are getting any pulses at the wire ends at A,B, or Abar Bbar
