Story published at 13:38, Friday, January 29th, 2016
The combination of a Lynx control system and Infinity sprinklers proved to be a popular choice for golf clubs and sporting venues the length and breadth of Britain in 2015, which is why the duo headlined Toro’s irrigation range at this year’s BTME.
Toro’s Lynx irrigation control system software is fast, intuitive and provides greenkeeping and grounds professionals with all the information they need to better manage their water and resources. It is the only control system for golf and irrigated sports venues available from Toro because, quite simply, no other is needed, Lynx can do everything.
Designed in conjunction with a top Google software developer, and in close consultation with greenkeeping and other turf professionals, its key features and benefits include an intuitive interface that allows users to precisely customise the system to their course conditions and requirements.
It features reporting and map components, plus access to comprehensive information like weather and pump stations, sprinklers, intelligent field controllers and Toro Turf Guard wireless soil sensors, which was also on display on the Lely stand. But when you unite Lynx with Toro’s Infinity Series sprinklers it’s a winning combination.
Infinity sprinklers have all the quality features of increased efficiency, enhanced course appearance and improved playing conditions, for which Toro is renowned. But with the big, added benefit of ‘Smart Access’.
With Smart Access, Toro has designed a sprinkler in which every element – big or small, mechanical or electrical – is easily accessible from the top of the unit. Therefore sprinkler maintenance has never been easier.
It means an end to digging out the sprinkler for or adjustments, avoiding consequent damage to the playing surface and all the time-consuming rectifying work needed to make good.
Robert Jackson, irrigation manager at Lely, says: “With the smart technology of Lynx and Smart Access of Infinity you get the ideal combination to maximise performance with minimal effort. The unprecedented amount of integrated, valuable information packed into Lynx software allows course managers to make even better choices about what their course needs at all times and in all situations. This precise, comprehensive information lets them get the jobs done more quickly, more easily and, above all, effectively. Add on top of that a sprinkler, which enables users to add new technology using only a screwdriver and you can see how the job just got a whole lot easier.”
Robert adds: “We were delighted to show a great range of irrigation solutions suitable for all applications and budgets at BTME including Toro’s T7 and Flex range of sprinklers. We were also delighted to be able to advise on the best water-management products for turfcare professionals’ varying needs.”
