• Compatible with Windows 7, 8.1 and 10
This is a major version of GTI-PC software with the main benefit of compatibility with Microsoft Windows 10.
This allows sites with older computers to upgrade to the latest hardware safe in the knowledge that GTI software is completely compatible and they can continue to use their irrigation system without any interruption.
As with previous GTI versions, it is available in the following languages: English, German, French, Swedish and Korean.
Sites looking to install a new GTI-PC system will always be issued with the latest version of GTI software and can find all the information they require within the GTI-PC section of the web site. Any required updates will be given free of charge for the first year.
Customers with an active GTI System Support Agreement will receive version updates free of charge as part of their Agreement.
If you are an existing user of a GTI system, it is recommended to keep up to date with the latest software from Bailoy.
Upgrading to the latest GTI-PC software will ensure that your GTI irrigation system is running with the latest features and benefits to help your system work at its optimum performance. It also ensures it is fully compatible with the latest windows operating systems and driver files for peripheral items such as USB Serial Port adaptors, Fibre Optic Adaptors, Communication Boosters and the DTMF Radio interface.
When you upgrade your GTI software, your existing hardware will not require replacing and will continue to work as before. The only exception to this is sites upgrading from very old 2.xx software versions which will require a replacement Fibre Optic Adaptor, USB Serial Port Adaptor and a DOU Firmware update. All these items are included in the upgrade pack and can be fitted in minutes.
To request an upgrade to your existing system, please complete the application form below online.
Database and site data information
The upgrade is a simple and seamless process and allows the user to transfer all the existing databases and records from the previous version being used if a backup copy has been saved to a USB memory stick.
It is so important that the data in your database accurately reflects the hardware installed on site. If information is out of date the system will not function to its full potential and may cause over and underwatering as well as unwanted wear and tear on sprinklers, pumps and pipework.
For further information on how your data can affect your system and services we offer in relation to this, see related pages below.
If the original CD is damaged or lost, there is a charge to replace the software.
See Bulletin GTI-TSD-038 GTI-PC on how to proceed.
Computers & Hardware
An important but often overlooked aspect of a PC based irrigation system is the computer because if this fails to work, the complete system fails to operate. Although GTI software will install on a very basic machine, it is important to choose a reliable brand and have it set up correctly so that everything runs smoothly day after day.
Bailoy supply PC’s in conjunction with its business partner DELL and each one is pre-configured by Bailoy with GTI software pre-installed, unlocked and your database re-installed.
Computer Hardware Cover
There is also the option to purchase a new GTI-PC Computer with a 3-year GTI-PC Computer Hardware Cover Agreement, so in the unlikely event the computer has an issue, a Bailoy technician will help you get back up and running or supply a replacement computer.
Additional IT equipment
We also supply additional hardware items such as monitors and uninterrupted power supplies (UPS)
Bailoy offer remote and on-site installation services for all system upgrades.
For full details on site installations and other services we offer, see our Training and Services document PSI-026.
Why should I choose a Bailoy PC rather than one supplied from a local retailer?
In our experience, the cost of your time sourcing and then configuring a new computer outweighs the cost of purchasing from Bailoy direct
My IT department can supply and set up the PC
Although your IT department may be familiar with computers in an office environment, they are rarely familiar with how it needs to work in conjunction with the irrigation system.
Why can’t you supply a specification sheet for my IT supplier to work from?
Unfortunately we are unable to do this because of liability issues. Any problems that may arise from not correctly following our specification could result in your system not running correctly
You pre install remote access software. My IT department will not allow this as it may compromise our security system.
The software we use can’t be used to access your PC unless you give permission for any session to start.
I am in Germany and want Microsoft Windows in German not English
We can supply the PC in almost any language.
