Reduce Water Usage and Improve Playability

Monitor moisture levels and adjust irrigation without risking turf quality. Promote root growth by avoiding over watering. Detect dry areas before they impact the turf’s health.

100% Wireless Network

No wires between the repeaters and the sensors, or the sensor and the probes means that sensors can be installed anywhere on the course without disrupting play. Install sensors without having to trench or pull wires.

Take the Guesswork out of Managing Salinity

Track salt build-up and schedule flushing as needed. Get positive confirmation that you’re flushing reduced soil salts. Know when and how much water to flush with.

Two Distinct Depths in the Soil Profile

Get independent measurements from critical root zone level and a second 127 mm lower.

Web-based or Stand-alone Interface

Graphical course overview displays sensor data at-a-glance. Plus with Toro Lynx® Control System integration you can check course moisture, salinity and temperature readings right from your irrigation control software.
