The specifications of a Basler camera lists a Frame Rate for the camera in units of frames per second (FPS). However, you might find that you are getting a much lesser FPS than listed. This might be due to various settings of the camera for your situation which might be constraining your FPS.
There is a Basler Frame Rate Calculator application which can be used to play around with the camera parameters to figure out the FPS for given settings for your camera.
Go to the Basler page for your camera. Find the Frame Rate Calculator in the Downloads section and download it.
