Next Generation Multi-Port Medical Device Server Specifically designed for the medical industry, the UL and IEC-60601 compliant EDS-MD provides mission-critical device connectivity, allowing remote access and management of virtually any electronic or medical device. EDS-MD boasts 4, 8 or 16 individually isolated RS-232 serial ports with a Gigabit (10/100/1000Mpbs) network interface. Going above and beyond the IEC-60601 requirement, EDS-MD provides galvanic isolation on all ports to ensure the highest levels of safety. If a grounding problem occurs, the operation of EDS-MD or other connected devices will not be affected. With Lantronixâ€™ proprietary Secure Com Port Redirector virtualization software, existing serial port applications can work with EDS-MD without any code modifications. Virtual COM ports can be mapped to EDS-MD and encrypted at both ends of the communication, allowing the transport of sensitive information to and from remote device servers over the Internet with the highest level of security. Set up and configuration of EDS-MD is simple with industry-standard management tools including Web, CLI and XML.
