Lantronix Launches New EDS5000 Series Device Server

Remotely connect and manage serial devices faster, more securely and with more options to suit the environment

Lantronix Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a global leader in compute and connectivity IoT solutions, today announced the launch of its new next-generation desktop or 1U rack mountable EDS5000 series of device servers, supporting 8, 16 or 32 serial managed devices over Ethernet (10/100/100BASE-T or 100/1000 SRP) for easy remote access and management of any serial-based equipment, such as medical devices, POS terminals or security equipment.

“With continued adoption of industrial automation and increasing demand for remote environments, Lantronix is leading the charge by offering a new family of world-class device servers that enable its customers to maintain and expand serial connections over Ethernet for better management and visibility,” said Mathi Gurusamy, chief strategy officer for Lantronix. “With this new family of device servers, Lantronix is poised to meet growing market demand for secure, remote device server solutions.”

The global serial device server market size will reach $401.47 million by 2028, up from $270.59 million in 2022, according to Maia Research Analysis’ Global Serial Device Server Market Report published in 2022.

Key features of the EDS5000 series servers include:

  • IPv6 technology for faster serial speeds than previous EDS versions (921K vs 230K Baud).
  • RS232, RS422 and RS485 support, which allows for multiple serial protocols to be supported in a single solution, eliminating the need for separate devices for each protocol.
  • Redundant power inputs, one AC input and one DC allowing for installation in a variety of environments based on power availability. AC and DC can also be used concurrently for redundancy.
  • Ethernet connection via 10/100/1000 copper RJ45 or 100/1000 SFP to support a variety of LAN/WAN options in a single solution. It can connect via copper Ethernet when it’s less than 100 meters in distance, and the Fiber SFP port can be used for distances beyond 100 meters or for additional security.
  • Wide operating temperature of -10°C to +60°C to accommodate most installation environments.
  • Comprehensive Device Security Framework, delivering enterprise-level security with an unprecedented level of intelligence and safety with SSL/TLS, AES and SSH built in.
  • Easy set-up and configuration using Lantronix’s Windows-based Provisioning Manager, which can be used locally or remotely with the Lantronix Percepxion™ device management platform, providing single-pane-of-glass cloud management.
