Introducing the Spike Marker

March 11, 2024
The compact, reliable and versatile solution for marking buried utilities.

Tempo® Communications recently announced the launch of the Spike Marker. It's designed to mark objects buried in soil up to one meter deep. It's an ideal solution for marking a wide range of applications, including cable TV drops, fiber drops, traffic light control cables, and power or gas lines.

The Spike Marker boasts a compact design, with a diameter of less than 20mm and a length of 89mm (3.5 in). The small size makes it perfect for shallow and narrow ducts where a larger marker ball is impractical. It is ideal for marking key points in networks such as tees, valves, junction boxes, and more. 

It's available in all industry-standard frequencies and color combinations including telephone and fiber versions with a 7mm diameter "coupler" nose. This allows for direct application to "dead ends" of fiber micro-ducts and similar applications using standard off-the-shelf couplers.

The Spike Marker is impermeable to water and resistant to acids, alkalis, and solvents. Its outer case is made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), ensuring long-lasting performance in any environment. Additionally, the Spike Marker is compatible with Tempo’s EML-100 Marker Locator and all other industry-standard marker locators, making it a versatile choice for professionals in the field.
