The 3M™ EMS Near-Surface Markers provide an accurate, long-lasting method of marking underground facilities.
The near-surface marker is ideal for marking underground Power lines at distance of up to 3' (0.9 meters). Markers provide accurate identification of buried power lines, helping to reduce the risk of accidentally excavating other buried facilities. The near-surface markers have a small cylindrical shape that allows for easy installation after the asset has been buried. iD Markers can be programmed to include customer-specific information, such as the facility owner, conduit size, placement date, and other important details. This information can be accessed and changed by 3M locators with the iD function. This can all be done without the need for an external power connection.
