This is the Universal File Format data set used for importing/exporting the data of a transducer sitting in a specific node and pointing in a specific direction. In the case of ARTeMIS Extractor it is the raw time series of a transducer. For more information see e.g. WEBsite of the Structural Dynamics Research Laboratory at University of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Record 1: Format(80A1)

Field 1 
ID Line 1. 
Note: ID Line 1 is generally used for the function description.
Record 2: Format(80A1)

Field 1 
ID Line 2. 
Record 3: Format(80A1)

Field 1 
ID Line 3. 
Note: ID Line 3 is generally used to identify when the function was created. The date is in the form DDMMMYY, and the time is in the form HH:MM:SS, with a general Format(9A1,1X,8A1).
