The following extensions are used by the SediMeter software:
|.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.|
|.sm4||SediMeter.exe version 4 default save format||Measurement data from one to 255 instruments||Contains raw measurement data. The software can also open .sm2 and .sm3 files from software versions 2 and 3, respectively.|
|.smnt||SediMeter.exe||Network definition||Instrument network IDs and geographical coordinates|
