.ld2 SediMeter.exe; LogDator Measurement data from one instrument A file that contains an exact copy of the data downloaded from a SediMeter or SediTrans instrument. From version 5 this is used for saving, but the user can manually save an *.sm5 file later. This file format can also be used in slave monitoring, in which a third party logger downloads data and writes to *.ld2 file in real time. The LogDator logger writes *.ld2 files to SD cards.
.sm5 Manually saved work file in SediMeter.exe version 5 Measurement data from one to 255 instruments Contains raw measurement data. The software can also open .sm2, .sm3, and .sm4 files from software versions 2, 3, and 4 respectively.
