If you are calling one rev of the motor as 1 unit then 426,666/3,200 will be the steps per unit.

Edit sorry thats wrong, if 2000 line encoder thats 8000 per rev so if one rev is one unit then its 8000

if i set 8000 to "step per" it means that it will turn 3200 RPM right ? (for this calculation)

If you set the steps per at 8000 that means when you command a move of 1 unit per minute the motor will turn one revolution in one minute and the pulses sent out will be 8,000 per minute.
If you command a speed of 3,200 units per minute then that will be 8,000 x 3,200 = 25,600,000 pulses sent out per minute or 426,666 pulses per second.

Is this a spindle motor?
