The cell receiver collects all measurement data from Sky transmitters and sends it to the Ovaport web application, this can be done via a 3G connection via an internet provider (sim card with M2M subscription) or via a fixed LAN network connection. It features a radio receiver for Sky series wireless transmitters and an RS485 interface with highly configurable Modbus RTU bus master. The Modbus RTU bus master can be used to collect data from different Modbus RTU slaves.
This receiver collects all data from the wireless sensors/transmitters via a LoRa signal. The LoRa signal is an advanced modulation technique that allows a much greater range than traditional wireless techniques. The Nokeval Sky product series uses this technology on the license-free 433MHz noise cancelling ISM band (not available in all countries). The battery-powered 10 MW transmitters have a range in open space of several kilometres and the practical indoor range is between 50 and 250 meters. The modulation technique tolerates other traffic on the same bandwidth excellently. These receivers also have an internal memory, so that measured values can be buffered internally in the event of signal loss. This prevents possible data loss.
