Interval data recorder
Table of Contents


The 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 E-Mon and its
representatives are not responsible for damage or injury from improper installation.
The IDR is housed in a JIC Steel Enclosure, where ambient temperatures are between +32 and +120 degrees
Fahrenheit. It is available in 8 and 16 input configurations.
The IDR must be located in an area that is central to the meters connected to it.
All meters can be located up to 500 feet from the IDR.
NOTE: The IDR Modular Jack Model is designed to operate with Honeywell E-Mon meters only. Terminal input
models can support the monitoring of third-party metering equipment; contact Honeywell E-Mon for
further information.
The IDR must be installed in a location according to the following 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 flammable chemicals or vapors are present.
The IDR enclosure 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.
IDR-16's are supplied with an ID letter for each group of 8 inputs to make them compatible with Honeywell
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 combinations 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.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part

installed there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment
off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
