LEC and Red Lion help North Dakota company enhance remote monitoring and control in fracking industry

February 20, 2018 – Magnus Services, a start-up oilfield water management and automation company based in North Dakota works in the fracking industry. With the recent release of their H2Know solution, Magnus is monitoring and controlling the supply of water to the fracking operations of key oil company clients across the U.S. This solution is made possible thanks to LEC’s Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform technology: iQ2, and Red Lion’s IIoT-ready Cellular RTU’s.

“We needed a way to remotely control the water supply and monitor water usage, pumps, storage tank levels and overall operational efficiencies of our mobile units that are relocated from site-to-site and customer-to-customer,” said JR Ewing, CEO of Magnus Services. “H2Know being built on the backbone of LEC’s iQ2 platform and secure cellular connectivity has allowed us to begin doing just that.”

Prior to the implementation of LEC’s iQ2 into Magnus operations, two to four additional employees were required to be onsite to physically monitor tank levels, turn pumps on and off, open and close valves, and notify trucking companies when trucks with water were needed.

iQ2 provides Magnus with multi-customer access to data via a web browser from any device, a fully mobile solution and cellular connectivity with the ability to operate in extreme conditions utilizing the RAM 6900 Series router hardware provided by LEC’s strategic partners at Red Lion Controls. 

For Magnus Services, iQ2 is providing remote monitoring and control capabilities and meaningful data.

“The development and implementation of iQ2 has provided a market-first for Magnus and our H2Know Solution, and in the process, has helped to create a new business model for our company moving forward,” said Ewing. 

LEC’s iQ2 is now available and ready to deploy to OEM, plant floor and other industrial remote asset clients, enabling the capture and visualization of actionable data from field assets with simplified connectivity to existing infrastructure.
