Abstract. We present the hard X-ray time-averaged spectrum of the intermediate polar V709 Cas observed with INTEGRAL. We performed the observation using data from the IBIS/ISGRI instrument in the 20-100 keV energy band and from JEM-X at lower energy (5-20 keV). Using different multi-temperature and density X-ray post-shock models we measured an improved post-shock temperature of ~40 keV and estimated the V709 Cas mass to be 0.82+0.12-0.25 M⊙. We compare the resulting spectral parameters with previously reported BeppoSAX and RXTE observations.

Key words: binaries: general, stars: individual: V709 Cas, X-rays:, stars
