Flex-Sky-Link-RS485 Wireless Data Receiver
The Flex-Sky-Link-RS485 serves as a data receiver designed for Nokeval Ovasky’s 433 MHz wireless data transmission technology. Its primary function is to receive and store the data packets transmitted by Ovasky transmitters.
Housed within a rugged and watertight (IP 66) plastic enclosure, it’s further protected by two rubber O-rings sealing the joint between modules. The receiver operates on an 8 to 30 VDC power supply and connects to a computer or PLC through RS-485.
Data transmission between the receiver and the computer is facilitated using the Nokeval SCL or Modbus RTU protocol. The Flex-Sky-Link-RS485 is equipped with a single diagnostic LED for status indication.
Specifications of the Data Receiver
The device is engineered to withstand a broad range of environmental conditions. It boasts a storage temperature range of -40 to +70 °C and an operating temperature range of -30 to +60 °C. It can operate in humidity levels ranging from 0 to 100 %RH. With an IP 65 protection class and a durable plastic (PC+ABS) enclosure, it ensures resilience.
Compatibility and Frequency
The device is compatible with Sky series devices and the Ovaport data collection service. It operates on a 433 MHz frequency and can transmit with a maximum power of +10 dBm E.R.P. Its range in open spaces varies depending on settings and can extend up to 10 km, while its typical indoor range ranges from 20 to 60 meters.

What is a Data Receiver?
A data receiver is a device or component that captures and interprets data transmitted wirelessly or via a network. It receives and processes data signals, making the information accessible for further use, analysis, or storage by connected systems or devices. Data receivers are commonly used in communication systems, IoT devices, and various data collection applications.
What is Wireless Data Transmission?
Wireless data transmission refers to the process of sending digital information between devices without the use of physical cables. It utilises wireless communication technologies, such as radio waves, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or cellular networks, to transmit data over the airwaves.
