Illinois, United States: Spectrum Technologies has released a new version of the popular WatchDog 2900ET weather station that is compatible with the Toro Lynx Central Control for golf course irrigation systems.
The package developed from Spectrum includes a 2900ET weather station, mid-range wireless radio communications to transmit data up to two miles and a service application that allows the station data to be incorporated into Lynx.
Connecting a WatchDog weather station to Lynx enables golf courses to control irrigation more efficiently by using real-time weather data to help manage irrigation scheduling.
The WatchDog 2900ET station has been proven in various industries including golf, research, and agriculture, providing reliable weather data, such as wind speed and direction, air temperature, relative humidity, dew point, rainfall and solar radiation for better decision making.
Alicia Gillman, Director of Marketing for Spectrum Technologies, said: “The main advantage of the 2900ET station model is the ability to calculate evapotranspiration (ET) values to support the superintendent’s irrigation schedules. By basing irrigation decisions on real-time ET data, you are able to deliver water more efficiently with less waste.”
David Angier, Senior Marketing Manager at Toro, added: “The Lynx Central Control System was developed to give you intuitive control over what happens on your course and now that it is compatible with Spectrum’s affordable WatchDog Weather Station, you can quickly and easily protect your course with one of the most powerful packages to optimise your irrigation and IPM decisions.”
Spectrum Technologies is a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation while Toro is an Executive Member.
