.tdm File Extension

Developer: National Instruments
File type: LabVIEW Binary Measurement File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .tdm. Files with the file extension .tdm can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .tdm files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .tdm file?

The TDM file extension is implemented by LabView, a program used in the interaction with hardware devices. The pieces of data that can be stored in these TDM files are encoded with ASCII specifications and standards. The TDM file format is also used by some data research and analysis tools that were also developed by National Instruments Corporation. These are applications designed for measurements and engineering in areas such as processing, evaluating and generating reports for measurement data. The TDM file format archives measurement and analysis data plus descriptive information in a hierarchical structure. Data from several measurements can be archived in one single TDM file. Other pieces of data, such as test results, can also be stored in these TDM files. When TDM files are loaded unto compatible software, the original data hierarchy plus any additional descriptive information is immediately available to the user. This enables data analysis, report generation and easier interpretation of results.

how to open a .tdm file?

Launch a .tdm file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .tdm file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .tdm files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .tdm file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .tdm file will open the correct application.

National Instruments LabVIEW

National Instruments LabVIEW

LabVIEW (short for Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineering Workbench) is a system design platform and improvement environment for a visual programming language from National Instruments. It is frequently used for instrument control, data acquisition, and industrial automation on a range of platforms including Microsoft Windows, a variety of versions of UNIX, Linux, and Mac OS X. The latest version of LabVIEW is “LabVIEW 2012”, released in August 2012; this platform is originally released for the Apple Macintosh on 1986. The TDM file type is mainly employed with 'DIAdem', a program by National Instruments Corporation intended for measurements and engineering in areas such as evaluating, processing, and generating reports for measurement data. When TDM files are loaded into appropriate software, the original data together with any added descriptive information is immediately available to the user. This enables report generation, data analysis, and easier interpretation of results. This file extension is utilized by LabView, for the interaction of hardware devices with data being stored in ASCII format.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .tdm files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .tdm. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
