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

improper installation.

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

supply (provided).

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.)
