The Marker-Mate Electronic Marker Locator (EML-100) built by Tempo Communications is designed to locate underground buried electronic markers, including Tempo OmniMarker™ at industry-standard frequencies.
The EML-100 re-sets the industry standard with the updated capability of detecting nine different electronic marker types of buried utilities simultaneously, when in “scan” mode (power, European power, water, sanitary, telephone, fiber optic, gas, cable TV, non-potable water). The EML-100 is also user-selectable for any one of the marker types.
Utilizing digital signal processor technology, the Marker-Mate is the most sophisticated and highest performing marker locator available. At the same time, the Marker-Mate was built to operate in all weather conditions. Tempo’s Marker-Mate, Omni Marker, and Spike Marker…a complete solution.
