About Daniels Electronics

Since 1938, Codan’s Land Mobile Radio (LMR) Division, also known as Daniels Electronics, has been focused on communications. For the first 40 years, Daniels focused on marine radios before shifting to Land Mobile Radio (LMR). In 1979, the company's first microprocessor-based synthesized radio was developed. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Daniels Electronics products evolved to meet the growing demands of its customers.

In 2000, Daniels Electronics released a low current P25 digital repeater, the MT-4 series. Combined with the low current consumption, this made the Daniels digital repeater ideal for low current installations such as solar-powered sites or transportable solutions.

In August 2012, Codan Limited acquired Daniels Electronics Ltd., adding an industry leader in reliable Land Mobile Radio products to their portfolio. Codan Communications is a division of Codan Limited, a global and publically listed company founded in 1959 and headquartered in Adelaide, Australia. The LMR division of Codan Communications continues the Daniels Electronics 70 year tradition of providing the most reliable, flexible and cost effective solutions to customers. Codan Communications’ Land Mobile Radio (LMR) products are designed and manufactured in the Victoria, Canada facility.
