SUB Series Interval Data Recorders
The SUB Series Interval Data Recorder (IDR) is an energy
data collection device. Installation must be performed by
qualified personnel only and must be in accordance with local
and national electrical codes. Honeywell and its
representatives are not responsible for damage or injury from
The IDR is contained within a NEMA 12 enclosure and is
designed for INDOOR USE ONLY, where ambient
temperatures are between +32 and +120 ºF. It is available in 8
and 16 input configurations.
The SUBIDR must be located in an area that is central to the
meters connected to it.
The meter that is connected to meter jack #1 on the
IDR must be within 100 feet from the IDR, as it sup-
plies low-voltage power to operate the IDR. All other
meters can be located up to 500 feet from the IDR.
NOTE: The IDR with modular jacks is designed to operate
with Honeywell meters only. Terminal input models
can support the monitoring of third-party metering
equipment; contact Honeywell for further information.
The IDR must be installed in a location according to these
guidelines to ensure continued safe, trouble-free operation.
— Do not install near sensitive radio communication
equipment or receiving antenna systems.
— Do not install near high-energy electrical fields such as
those produced by welding equipment or by high-
power electrical motors.
— Always install in an area that is dry, away from any
potential liquid or chemical splash hazards. Never
install electrical equipment in an area where flamma-
ble chemicals or vapors are present.
— The IDR enclosure’s door must be kept closed once
installed. Exposing the internal circuits to dust, dirt,
fumes or high humidity can damage the IDR.
NOTE: All internal circuits are isolated from the AC line.
NOTE: IDRs with modular jacks can be powered from either
the first Honeywell meter or by an external power
supply (requires 120 VAC). IDRs with removable
screw-type connectors require an external power
SUBIDR-16’s are supplied with an ID letter for each group of 8
inputs to make them compatible with E-Mon Energy™
software. The available choices are A-B, C-D, E-F, G-H, I-J, K-
L, M-N, O-P, Q-R, S-T, U-V, W-X and Y-Z. No other combi-
nations are available. When mixing 8-point and 16-point IDRs
together, it may be necessary to jump a letter in the system.
As an example, if you have an 8-point IDR labeled “A”, “B” and
“C”, the 16-point IDR to choose would be the E-F unit.
The IDR is available in three configurations.
1. Modular Jacks (SUBIDR-8 and SUBIDR-16): Supplied
with all modular jacks for use only with Honeywell

2. Plug-In Screw-Type Connectors (SUBIDR-8 and
SUBIDR-16): Supplied with all plug-in screw-type con-
nectors for use with third-party meters (electric, gas,
water, etc.) that are provided with a dry contact pulse
output. (Requires external power supply.)
