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.
