InfraMarker is an integrated system of hardware, mobile software, and GIS management to mark and manage underground assets. Advantages include faster locating, real-time access to information in the field, activity tracking, and easy GIS integration. It reduces speeds locating, reduces damage risk, and provides higher quality maintenance and audit tracking. Underground assets can be tangled and complicated, especially in cities. This means, of course, that utility locating can be complicated. And technologically speaking, utility locating has been a stagnant sector for decades – pipe and cable locators, based on detection of induced frequencies, have been around since the 1950’s, and haven’t changed much. But there is one exciting innovation in underground asset location: magnetic radio frequency identification or RFID markers. Placed at key asset points, Berntsen International’s patent pending InfraMarkers, based on the unique synergy between passive magnetic locating and passive battery-free read/write RFID technology, enable precise subsurface utility location and asset verification that is very fast, secure, and as easy as 1, 2, 3… Combining the speed and precision of magnetic locating with the security of RFID identification is revolutionizing underground utility location. And the InfraMarker system helps with a lot more than location; it’s also bringing speed and security into the GIS/IT office.
