Control Techniques wins iF Design Award 2022

Control Techniques is a winner of this year’s iF Design Award, the world-renowned design prize.

The Commander S and the Marshal app, won in the Product discipline of the Industry/Tools category.

Organised each year in Germany by the iF International Forum Design GmbH, the iF Design Award has been recognised as an arbiter of quality for excellent design since 1954. The iF Design brand is renowned worldwide for outstanding design services and is one of the most important design prizes in the world. The award honours design achievements in all disciplines including product, packaging, communication and service design, architecture, and interior architecture as well as professional concept, user experience (UX) and user interface (UI).

Commander S and Marshal won over the 132-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, with its outstanding modern design and innovative technology, incorporating NFC technology onboard the drive. The competition was intense: almost 11,000 entries were submitted from 57 countries in hopes of receiving the seal of quality.

Commander S has been designed with the user in mind. Control Techniques conducted extensive research to understand the users’ needs and to build a viable solution. Users want a drive that is fast to install, easy to commission and reliable and this is how Commander S addresses those needs:

The sleek curved design of Commander S optimixes component layout for a small footprint and easy access to terminals. The click-on/click-off DIN rail mount makes installation remarkably easy. The control terminals are angled and offset screw connectors for easy access. The marking for the terminals is laser printed for easy identification.

Commander S comes with an app interface called Marshal that provides guided setup routines, making it possible to commission the drive in only 60 seconds. The app is free of charge and the data transfer between the mobile device and Commander S is powered by NFC technology.
