This new family of network servers has been specifically designed to meet the stringent regulatory and safety standards associated with the healthcare industry, including IEC-60601-1, EN 6061-1-2 and UL 6061-1. ADI's patented digital isolator technology provides a distinct advantage including galvanic isolation that isolates and protects the EDS server and other connected medical devices in the event of a grounding mishap.

"Lantronix helps physicians, nurses, diagnosticians and hospital administrators develop more effective ways to manage patient care, whether through remote monitoring or data collection," said Daryl Miller, Vice President of Engineering for Lantronix. "Because of the healthcare industry's rigorous safety and reliability standards, we adopted ADI's iCoupler digital isolator technology to help deliver vital data faster, more securely and more efficiently to healthcare professionals so they can make better informed decisions about their patients' care."

According to an ABI Research study, revenue from sales of Wi-Fi-enabled healthcare products worldwide will total close to $5 billion in 2014. This represents an increase of nearly 70 percent over today's figure.
