  • Light Runner is one of the most versatile optical communication lab with various lasers sources, detectors and abundant passive components, which helps the students to perform various advance experiments such EDFA, OADM, WDM and many more. The product was demonstrated very well by Mr. Keerthi Prasad.
    Dr. Yogita Kalra, Assistant Professor, Department of Applied Physics, Delhi Technological University Delhi
  • I have conducted almost five experiments on Light Runner uptil now and I am very happy that your product had been very useful for students to actually understand glass fiber and its characteristics. Students are keen in doing projects using Light runner. All the experiments and the detailed manual provided by you explain the basic to advanced level of experiments in the field of optical fiber communication and we find it very much user friendly. We are glad to possess a Light Runner experiment module for our communication lab.
    Ms. Nilashree Wankhede, Associate Professor, Department of EXTC, Fr. C. Rodrigues Institute of Technology, Vashi- Navi Mumbai
  • LIGHT RUNNER- WDM is a versatile equipment serving the purpose of many experiments in a single unit. The delicate handling of Fiber Optic cables, connectors and other components are avoided through good encapsulations.
    Prof. N.M. Gouri, Associate Proffessor, Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering, JNTU College of Engineering, Hyderabad
  • I am very glad to see that Light Runner is capable of performing various experiments, which will be helpful for our students to get an industrial exposure. The experiment list is designed in such a way that it can provide basic to advance level of experience in the field of optical fiber communication; Light Runner is compact, portable, standalone system and user friendly laboratory. Dr.S.K.Sudheer, Assistant Professor, Department of Optoelectronics, University of Kerala, Kariavattom Campus Thiruvananthapuram
  • Light runner WDM and EDFA provide a complete coverage of experiments for fiber optic communication lab. Robustness of the kits is suitable for laboratory purposes. The kits present a clear understanding of WDM and EDFA technology. The user friendly arrangement offers better control of the equipment. Additional experiments can also be developed. Further oscilloscope, coupler and power meter are fitted in the kits. Dr. D. Vakula, Asst. Professor, Dept. of Electronics and Communication Engineering, National Institute of Technology,Warangal
  • I am quite happy to see a standalone solution to fiber optic communication labs. The kit has been designed to provide exposure to advanced optical communication experiments such as those based on WDM, OADM, EDFA etc, and is capable of providing many more experiments over and above the 16 experiments claimed.More so, it does not require any external instruments and such as oscilloscope, couplers, power meter, etc. It is quite user friendly and comprehensive laboratory. Dr Vijay Janyani, Associate Professor(ECE), Malaviya National Institute of Technology, Jaipur
  • Light Runner has made it reality to have well versed optical fiber laboratory with minimum cost. Six optical sources, optical detectors, EDFA, FBG, MUX/DEMUX, circulator and couplers available on Light Runner Bench Top laboratory covers basic experiments to advance level experiments in OFC which is unique feature of this stand along system. Operating process of every experiment is user friendly and fast due to touch screen facility which attract learner to be familiar with OFC light Runner Bench top laboratory

  • Very nicely designed apparatus with a very good set of experiments! Good documentation for students.
    Dr. G Umesh, Dean Research & Consultancy, National Institute Of Technology (NIT), Surathkal, Karnataka
  • Photonics components are very expensive and the process of buying the components from foreign country is very elaborative and not cost effective, specially when budget is not so high. In this respect "Light Runner" is a great set-up to assemble laser sources, related detectors, and various components in one place. I purchased it on behalf of NITTTR, Kolkata for providing lab-based training to technical teachers, who can transfer knowledge to their students in due course. It will be very helpful set-up for technical students if the set up get a place in the related laboratory. I express congratulation and best wishes for the company on my behalf and I am optimistic of getting after sales support from the company

  • On the LR kit, I think it has many advantages and interests: it is modular, complete, requires no additional measuring equipment (oscilloscope). The proposed documentation (in the software interface and on the book) is very well done. It is quite detailed and clear drawings make it easy to perform the experiments. I have also appreciated: the possibility of other experiments than those offered. It is possible to imagine their own specific manipulations. In summary, I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of use of this LR Kit and very grateful to Abhay Katrela for the quality of training that he has produced.

  • In the year of 2011, IIITD&M Kancheepuram procured the three Light Runner kits (Basic, WDM and EDFA) for the Data Networks Lab. It has been observed that the kits are working effectively and are liked by the UG/PG students. The kits are also being employed in carrying our regular research activities in fiber optics.
    Dr. Naveen Kumar (IIITD&M Kancheepuram)
  • I appreciate the efforts taken by both of you in demonstrating to us the capabilities of the Light Runner Workbench. I also appreciate Fiber Optika for providing us with the latest version of the kit. I have seen all the three versions and the latest is definitely a better packaged and compact module with a lot of features built into it. Based on the demonstration and the features available I feel that there is a lot to explore and we would be able to carry out many more experiments, over and above what is specified in the experiment list. The kit is also student friendly and I definitely feel the students will enjoy working with the kit.
    Dr. M. Meenakshi, HOD, ECE (Anna University)
  • At the Institut für Hochfrequenztechnik of the Technische Universität Braunschweig, we are doing research work and teaching on optical communication for several decades now. When we ordered our first Light Runner system from Fiber Optika in 2009, our plan was to replace some outdated experiments in our student laboratory on optical communication systems by a setup with up-to-date components. However, we found that the Light Runner system was fitting our needs perfectly and with some additional systems we are now running all experiments of the student laboratory with Light Runner systems. We found the included manual very helpful for the preparation of the students as well as for the laboratory tutors.
    Dr. Ing. Reinhard Caspary(Institut für Hochfrequenztechnik)
  • I would like to appreciate and congratulates the team of light runner for manufacturing such a versatile and sophisticated experiment kit. Light runner is kit having 16 experiments on optical communication system; many of them are advanced level. The kit is useful for training purpose, for those who want to gain working knowledge on optical communication systems.
