3M 1255 Mini Marker Electronic Underground Marking
Find your underground facilities the first time.
The 3M™ 1255 Mini-Markerprovides an accurate, convenient,long-lasting method of marking underground facilities at depths of up to six feet. Electronic marking eliminates the time and money spent searching for “lost” facilities. And, unlike surface markers such as stakes, flags, or paint, the Mini-Marker cannot be inadvertently removed or worn away by weather .The Mini-Marker is buried over key facilities during construction and maintenance. It is located with the 3M™ 1264 EMS II Marker Locator orthe 3M™ Dynatel™ 2205/2206 EMS Marker Locating Accessory. The locator transmits a signal to the buried marker. The marker reflects the signal back to the locator, and its exact location is indicated with both a visual meter reading and an audible tone.
The Mini-Marker has a range of up to six feet from marker to locator. The Electronic Marker System is accurate even in congested areas. The locator is not affected by metal conduit or pipe, metallic conductors, fences, AC power, or other utilities’ electronic markers. Use of the locator and markers requires only a few minutes of training.
The system is the most dependable way to mark:
- Buried splices
- Load coils
- Buried service drops
- Conduit stubs
- Cable road crossings
- Fiber-optic facilities
- Cable paths
