Abacus Light Control System
Efficient, careful lighting design has given Abacus an international reputation for combining powerful, sharp illumination with low light pollution. Abacus’ Lighting Control System - exclusive to the Challenger® 1 - features a series of complementary technologies to help achieve this.

The Abacus Light Control System

Double Asymmetric Reflector
The double asymmetric reflector is designed to better concentrate and focus the light produced by each lantern. By emitting the main beam at an angle of 55, 60 or 65 degrees from the normal to the front glass, it results in a flat appearance, making less of the reflector visible to spectators as well minimising glare.
