Also included in the launch are two new sensor kits – a pressure sensor kit and a temperature sensor kit that are fully compatible with the Sensor Input Kits.
Designed with the superintendent in mind, these new tools deliver important field data to Toro Lynx Central Control Systems, and allow customers to assess and adjust irrigation programmes accordingly based on real-time data.
Additionally, the Sensor Input Kit can generate automatic responses to changes in the irrigation system and weather, when coupled with sensor alarms in Lynx. The Sensor Input Kits ultimately help superintendents make the right decisions for their courses based on specific data from the field, contributing to optimal course conditions.
“What we’ve done is provide the superintendent with all the necessary information they need to make the best decisions for their course,” said Andy Strother, Product Marketing Manager, Golf Irrigation Satellites at Toro, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“The data that the Sensor Input Kits provide is instrumental in helping maintain the overall health of the turfgrass, and being able to automate adjustments based on that data makes it that much easier for the superintendent to care for their course.”
The Sensor Input Kits are able to accept up to seven sensors, including a pressure sensor, a temperature sensor, and five customisable inputs for a rain gauge, a flow meter, or for indicating switch status.
