What is the encoder resolution for BMH motors?

BMH motors are available with high resolution optical encoder or medium resolution capacitive encoder.

The resolution of the medium resolution capacitive type is 32,768 counts per revolution

The resolution of the high resolution optical type is 131,072 counts per revolution.

Both types are also offered in a multi-turn version.
In which case the resolution is the same as before only the encoder can count up to 4096 rotations.

For example, the multi-turn medium resolution encoder counts 32,768 x 4096 turns for an absolute range up to 134217728 counts, where as the high resolution version has 131,072 x 4096 for an absolute range of 536870912 counts
