Harrogate Week 2010 Preview: Bailoy to launch next-generation GTI golf irrigation software

An updated golf irrigation system, the GTI V3.00, will be unveiled at BTME by Bailoy Products.

The new design features numerous new features and is the first in a series of upgrades to the GTI software.

Bailoy development director Frank Beks said: We’re delighted to be launching GTI V3.00 at Harrogate Week. This is a major step forward for us and paves the way for further developments planned for 2010 and beyond — without giving too much away, we’re particularly excited about an innovative new web-based feature in the pipeline that promises to make irrigation even more convenient for our users.

It has been designed to make programming and operating GTI irrigation systems simpler, quicker and more cost-effective and it is Windows Vista and 7 compatible.

Bailoy said the system requires fewer CSG cables while giving greater control over more sprinkler stations. The reduction in ground cabling will reduce costs and improve efficiency.

As well as monitoring where water is going and how much is being applied to which sprinklers, the software offers reporting functions, radio remote control, water flow management and detailed system diagnostics.

The Visual Irrigation Programme graphics feature enables the Gemini and Trident controllers to display a full-colour map of the golf course, pitch or court layout, and allows users to review and revise on-screen schedules and programmes with greater speed and ease of use.
