The MA API is a self-contained set of .NET libraries fully compatible with all released versions of the ASAM MDF standard up to MDF 4.2. Without needing to know the detailed structure of the underlying file, you can easily access all channels, channel groups, source information and events. Multiple files can be loaded simultaneously and numerical data efficiently provided for arbitrary combinations of channels on request.
- Version-independent API
Regardless of the file version, key information such as available measurement channels and groups is provided using a common API.
- Numerical Data
All time-based numerical channels in all MDF file versions are supported. Raw and physical (converted) values are available.
- Flexible and performant
Data can be cached for efficient reading and is accessible in a variety of ways to suit the client’s needs, including:
- Individual channel values by timestamp or index
- Channel and channel group ranges and basic channel statistics
- Sampled channel values for display at a given resolution
- Unfiltered channel values in a given index or time range for export or display.
