Locating and identifying underground assets just got a whole lot easier!
Berntsen International is pleased to announce the release of the InfraMarker RFID system for marking underground assets. Using a unique combination of magnetic location and on-site data storage, this system allows utilities to find underground assets faster than ever before, saving both time and money.
Finding and identifying underground assets has long been a challenge for public and private utilities. Mistakes and accidental hits can be both costly and dangerous. Using Berntsen’s InfraMarker RFID system, utilities can locate and positively identify assets in the field quickly. With data stored both on a software database and on the asset itself, positive identification of underground assets is faster than ever.
InfraMarker uses a patent-pending 3 step process: GPS to get close to the asset, magnetic locators to pinpoint the location and an RFID data signal to positively identify the asset. Various data sets can be stored directly on the asset for identification and maintenance. The magnetic signal offers a fail-safe signal that will last indefinitely.
The InfraMarker RFID system includes InfraMarker software, Trimble ThingMagic for issuing tags, Schonstedt locator for locating the magnetic signal, an RFID reader to read the tag data and a variety of tag designs. The system is available in various packages to make starting up fast and easy. For more information including video demonstrations visit www.InfraMarker.com
