Basler - Frame Rate Calculator

Let the Frame Rate Calculator Do the Math!

The Basler Frame Rate Calculator calculates the frame rate or line scan rate for your Basler area scan camera or line scan camera once a few parameters have been specified. For instance, should you wish to define an area of interest (AOI), the tool determines the maximum frame rate or line scan rate that can be achieved.
