New Product Supports the Essential IEC 60601 4th Edition Certification for the Medical Sector 

Dusseldorf, Germany – November 14, 2018 –  Lantronix, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LTRX), a global provider of secure data access and management solutions for the industrial Internet of Things (IoT) announced the introduction of SGX 5150-MD IoT gateway. Developed specifically for the medical industry, SGX 5150-MD IoT gateway facilitates the secure access and management of medical devices in hospitals, laboratories, and other healthcare environments. SGX 5150-MD enables network connectivity for equipment such as patient monitoring systems, glucose analyzers, EKG machines, ventilators and infusion pumps — helping deliver data, from routine statistics to life-saving, critical patient information to virtually any location, device, or healthcare information system.

The SGX 5150-MD is supported by Lantronix MACH10® Global Device Manager and Lantronix Gateway Central for a complete end-to-end solution that offers remote centralized device management and device telemetry data.  The new product supports all the connectivity interfaces used in the healthcare industry including serial (RS232/RS485, USB), Ethernet, Bluetooth and high-speed dual-band Wi-Fi. SGX 5150-MD is built on the industry leading Linux operating system and comes with a Software Development Kit (SDK) and a Python programming environment for additional customization by medical OEMs.

SGX 5150-MD Features include:

  • High performance dual band 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi with enterprise security
  • Bluetooth/WLAN coexistence
  • Support for Wi-Fi Direct and simultaneous SoftAP and client mode
  • TruPort® Security including Secure Boot, AES/CCMP and TKIP encryption, 802.11i, WPA2Enterprise-grade and various security protocols
  • Essential IoT applications that deliver multi-interface connectivity, full networking, extensive security, and industry leading device configuration and management
  • Remote centralized device management with Lantronix MACH10® IoT platform, including support for Lantronix Gateway Central and MACH10® Global Device Manager
  • IEC and UL-60601 certified
  • Extended temperature support (-40 to +85)

“With the average hospital using hundreds of common medical devices and prevalence of Wi-Fi networks, there is a significant need for the medical community to rapidly deploy device connectivity solutions which include Wi-Fi technology. Our new SGX 5150-MD is the first flagship IoT gateway specifically for the healthcare segment,” said Shahram Mehraban, vice president of marketing at Lantronix. “With our long history in this vertical, SGX 5150-MD is uniquely designed to solve the challenges faced by the medical industry today, which will ultimately result in improved patient care, reduced costs, and increased efficiency through real-time access to data.”

A key feature of SGX 5150-MD is support of IEC 60601-1-2 EMC 4th Edition standard which goes into effect in January of 2019.  The 4th edition of the 60601 standard covers new environments, new requirements of risk management and test planning, and more stringent testing for emissions and immunity.

SGX 5150-MD will be available worldwide in early 2019 through our channel partners, as well as through the Lantronix online store.  For further details, pricing, and ordering information on SGX 5150-MD, please contact or visit
