CUI Global Inc (NASDAQ:CUI) said its digital power monitoring subsidiary has been awarded the first major order for its ICE Switch - aimed at unlocking capacity in data centers.

The order is for 950 ICE units and it is expected to be delivered in full in January of 2018. It is intended to support a quickly ramping customer deployment in China.

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 the 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 recent production qualification of the ICE Switch has allowed us to quickly move from market interest to market acceptance," said Matt McKenzie, president of CUI.

"We expect market adoption of the ICE Switch to continue at a fast pace, and then ramp when the ICE Block is released, providing a comprehensive suite of power solutions for our customers."

The ICE Block, also manufactured by CUI, is currently progressing through the UL and TUV qualification process, which is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2017.

It will work jointly with the ICE Switch to support an even more compelling solution designed to save data centers millions of dollars in operating expenses and capital expenditures.

Shares in CUI Global fell 7.67% in New York to US$2.89.
