3M Full Range Markers

3M Full Range Marker

The 3M™ Full-Range Marker provides an accurate, convenient, long-lasting method of marking underground facilities. Electronic marking saves time and money spent searching for buried facilities prior to excavation. The marker also acts as a digging shield over buried facilities, lessening the chances of damage. And, unlike surface markers such as stakes, flags or paint, the full-range marker cannot be inadvertently moved or worn away by weather.

The addition of the new 3M-iD markers provides additional functionality by enabling facility data to be stored in the marker. The pre-programmed unique serial number integrates with back office mapping and GIS systems when used for mapping new and legacy assets and points of special interest for construction and maintenance applications.

The full-range marker is buried over key facilities during construction or maintenance. Later, the marker is easily and accurately located using a 3M™ Dynatel™ Locator. The locator transmits a signal to the buried marker. The marker returns the signal to the locator, indicating the marker’s exact position, while the locator provides both a visual reading and an audible tone.
