Riverside, California, United States: New for 2018, Toro has introduced the Lynx Smart Module, a brand-new technology solution designed to save operating costs through precision irrigation and provide high-speed diagnostics with a durable and reliable design.
The new Lynx Smart Module is the latest two-wire control system technology from Toro, designed for INFINITY and FLEX800 sprinkler systems. Lynx Smart Module is the result of Toro’s broad understanding of the needs of golf course superintendents and decades of engineering expertise.
Lynx Smart Module makes it possible to control sprinkler run times down to about one second, which can lead to significant water savings and provide outstanding course results by preventing overwatering.
Each component of the Lynx Smart Module is designed with durability in mind and is built to withstand tough lightning conditions. It works with Lynx Smart Hub to protect flow-managed irrigation schedules, even in the event of a central failure.
The Lynx Smart Module provides comprehensive diagnostic data up to 10 times faster than other two-wire brands. The system can provide diagnostic data for up to 1,000 sprinklers within seconds, allowing superintendents to address issues efficiently and reduce downtime.
Finally, Lynx Smart Module can be upgraded remotely with just a click, providing superintendents new features and benefits as they become available.
“The new Lynx Smart Module is designed to last and give superintendents unmatched longevity, while providing substantial water savings through precision control,” said John Dalman, Senior Product Manager, Control Systems at Toro, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation. “In addition, it’s easily upgradeable, meaning customers can count on having the latest advancements at their fingertips.”
