Riverside, California, United States: In an effort to continue to provide the most comprehensive irrigation monitoring system, Toro has once again upgraded the trusted Lynx central control system that provides remote control of irrigation systems.
This update marks the 12th iteration since the launch of Lynx in May of 2010.
The recent upgrade to the current version of Lynx focuses primarily on enhanced sensor inputs for the Lynx Smart Satellite, as well as compatibility with the new Lynx Dash interface.
The enhanced sensor inputs collect data regarding rainfall, pressure, temperature, status and flow. The new release also allows the user to set custom alerts that will notify the grounds crew when specific levels on the course hit a designated threshold.
Additionally, this new upgrade makes Lynx central control compatible with the new Lynx Dash – a comprehensive dashboard that provides enhanced information to superintendents and grounds crews, allowing them to make proper decisions regarding their irrigation practices.
Lynx Dash pulls in real-time weather information from a third-party weather provider, and provides improved diagnostic information about current site conditions.
Eligible Lynx central control users are assigned their own login credentials, and the upgrades allow multiple users to have simultaneous access to the system. Once the superintendent assigns the credentials, the entire team has visibility to the same information. This allows all individuals to work seamlessly to address practical irrigation issues.
“Staying true to our commitment to customer satisfaction, these upgrades are primarily driven by customer feedback,” said Paul Standerfer, Product Marketing Manager at Toro, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“With technology constantly changing, we’re always looking for the best ways to provide an improved user experience to our customers.”
