This paper focuses on the problem of finite-time stabilization for a class of high-order nonlinear systems with output constraint and zero dynamics. The systems under investigation possess two remarkable features: the output is restricted in a pre-specified region arising from the demand of practical operation, and inherent nonlinearities include nonlinear growth rate of high-order and low-order together with unmeasurable dynamic uncertainties. This paper proposes a continuous controller by means of a new tangent function and a serial of nonnegative integral functions with sign functions, and the controller ensures the adjustability of convergent speed of system state, which is faster than the counterpart of traditional finite-time stabilizers. The novelty is attributed to a perspective to applying the fast finite-time stability in partial state feedback control design in the case when the output is restricted. Finally, a numerical example is presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the theoretical result.
