CUI Global Inc (NASDAQ:CUI) says its digital power monitoring subsidiary has started production of its ICE switch - aimed at unlocking capacity in data centres.

"The ICE Switch is the next step in unlocking underutilized power capacity in data centers," said  Matt McKenzie, president of CUI.

The device is a power monitoring and switching system that connects to Virtual Power Systems' (VPS) ICE (Intelligent Control of Energy) Software to provide dynamic redundancy inside a data center.

Put simply, usually in a data center, half of the power infrastructure is untapped to provide redundancy (to be available) in the event of a failure.

But this ICE Switch unlocks additional power by allowing the centers to use that stranded power for non-critical servers, and can still provide cover if  a failure occurs.

The ICE software combines telemetry and machine learning predictions to distribute redundant power for optimal use.

"In addition to the peak shaving capabilities of the ICE Block hardware, the ICE Switch is a continuation of our efforts with Virtual Power Systems to set new standards for efficient power infrastructure," said McKenzie.

CUI Global Inc shares shed 3.49% to US$3.07 in New York.
