About Us:

Commander Controls Limited is a UK company formed in 1993 and was merged with two other associate companies to further develop remote control system technology using Infra-Red and Radio as transmission mediums and supported with advanced specialist microcomputer software management systems for secure signal coding and transmission and in addition to develop crane detection equipment as a safety product to automatically prevent collisions between crane structures during lifting operations using Microwave, Ultrasonic's and Infra-Red as communication mediums each with specific performance capability for a wide range of horizontal and multi-level vertical applications.
