3M™ Electronic Markers
Ball markers make the job of precisely locating underground facilities faster and easier. The 3M™ EMS Series iD Ball Markers are the first of a new series of markers which perfectly complement the existing line of EMS passive markers by providing more information than ever.
Critical information can be programmed into the new 3M™ EMS 1400 Series iD Ball Markers including facility data, hazard levels, type of application, placement date and other important details. For the first time, underground facilities can be positively identified with certainty, even in difficult environments. This helps to avoid costly mistakes.
