Re: Storm Comng - What Backup DOes CC Have for Voice?
in order to have CDV service, the system has to have battery backups on their power supplies on the poles (or ground). These will hold either 3 or 6 12v gel cells charger by an inverter. How long these batteries last depends on system voltage (60,75,89v), as well amp draw on that power supply.
Most will last 2-3 hours. Some less, some more.
Headends have diesel generators as well a wall of internal batteries, so long as they have fuel, and they kick on, you wont have to worry about that....
its all on the same system, so CDV/HSI/TV will all be running.
I'm better than you!
