Banks Trans Command

So while I was under my truck trying to find my oil leak I noticed this box on the frame and it is the banks trans command. What exactly does it do? And does it adjust the speddo for larger tires?

And also is it bad to have with my Diesel Innovations 6 position chip? Are they going to collide with each other trying to control the same thing? I haven't notice any problem but just wondering.

TransCommand is an automatic-transmission-management computer that delivers functions no power chip can. TransCommand converts Ford E4OD and 4R100 transmissions into super-duty units by intelligently increasing line pressure in proportion to load levels, as needed.
The E4ODs and 4R100s—used in full-sized Ford trucks and vans since 1989—have soft, car-like shift characteristics. Many truck owners prefer firmer shifts, especially when hauling large loads. TransCommand is the quick, efficient cure. The electronic module senses the load and commands the transmission to raise the hydraulic pressure accordingly. Light-throttle shifts are smooth and firm, while full-throttle or heavy-load driving produces solid, decisive shifts. Excessive clutch slippage is eliminated, extending transmission life.

Required with Sidewinder turbo, Stinger and PowerPack systems for Ford 6.9/7.3 and Power Strokes equipped with E4OD/4R100 automatics. Built with high-temp, solid-state components. Easy install.

But you can do all this with the SCT.

I have the Banks Transcommand and I am not very happy with it. I thought it would help the transmission with the extra power I have from mods that I have done. Well lets just say now I am looking at the BTS as my tranny is going...
