Planning Repeater Installation
CAUTION: The power outlet must be a non-switched, three-pronged,
grounded outlet. Do not use a three-to-two pronged adapter at the outlet.
Doing so may result in electrical shock and/or damage to the repeater and
will void your warranty.
NOTE: If the supplied power cord is lost or damaged, replace it with a power cord
of the same type and current rating (10 A). The replacement cord should also meet
required regulatory approvals to ensure emissions compliance.
Spatial Requirements
The repeater's dimensions are 3 x 16.95 x 14 inches, 7.62 x 43.05 x 35.56 cm
(HxWxD).
You can interconnect two repeaters. If there is not enough space to mount the
repeaters in a single rack or stack them on a single shelf, or if you want to
place the repeaters in different locations, you can place them on separate
shelves or in separate racks. See “Twisted-Pair (UTP) Wire Requirements” in
this chapter for more information.
Be sure to allow at least 2 inches (5.1 centimeters) on each side of the repeater
for proper air circulation and cable connections.
Twisted-Pair (UTP) Wire Requirements
The twisted-pair wiring you use to connect the repeater's RJ-45 ports must
meet the following minimum specifications and requirements to ensure longterm reliability.
■
The wiring must be unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) Category 5.
■
Two pairs of the four-pair wiring are used for signalling.
■
Depending on building codes, different insulation materials may be
required. Plenum-rated or TEFLON-coated wiring may be required in
some areas.
■
The wire gauge should be between 18 and 26 AWG. (Most telephone
installations use 24-gauge wiring.)

■
Installing New Wire
If you are installing the repeater where no wiring is present, or if existing
wiring does not meet the above specifications, install new wiring. The new
wiring should conform to national and local electrical wiring code
requirements and meet the above specifications. When installing wire, it is a
good idea to install extra pairs of wire for future expansion.
If you are unfamiliar with wiring installation or the applicable local electrical
wiring code or the 100Base-TX specification, you should have a professional,
licensed (if applicable) installer perform the installation.
Straight-through twisted-pair cable is typically used to connect a repeater to a
server or workstation. In a straight-through connection, Pin 1 at the repeater
connects to Pin 1 at the server, Pin 2 at the repeater connects to Pin 2 at the
server, and so on. Figure 2-1 shows the locations of pins on a standard RJ-45
plug on a twisted-pair cable.

Connecting Twisted-Pair Cable
Each RJ-45 port on the repeater can accept a standard 8-wire twisted-pair
(UTP) cable that ends with an RJ-45 connector. These ports can support cable
lengths up to 328 feet (100 meters).
To attach twisted-pair cable, plug one of the RJ-45 connectors into the
selected port on the repeater. Connect the other RJ-45 connector into a
100Base-TX or 10Base-T workstation.

Setting the Uplink Switches
The uplink switches enable the 1st and 12th ports on the repeater to function
as either standard IN RJ-45 ports or uplinkable OUT RJ-45 ports.
IN ports use an internal crossover of the receive and transmit lines, enabling
the port to connect to a network interface card using standard 8-wire UTP
cable. OUT ports let you interconnect the repeater and another repeater
without the need for special crossover cables and allows the two repeaters to
be on the same segment.

To convert Port 1 or Port 12 to an uplinkable OUT port, use a small, slotted
screwdriver, or a similar tool, to set the switch to the MDI position (Figure 34).
NOTE: IEEE specifications allow only one 100 Mb/s uplink connection per collision
domain. Therefore, you cannot uplink to two 100 Mb/s repeaters. However, you
can use both uplink ports for 10 Mb/s uplink connections.

Interconnecting Repeaters
You can interconnect two repeaters, providing up to 48 ports in the same
collision domain (segment). You can also connect the repeater to a singlespeed repeater (10 Mb/s or 100 Mb/s).
To connect the repeater to another repeater, set the appropriate uplink switch
as described in “Setting the Uplink Switches” in this chapter and connect the
repeaters as shown in Figure 3-5.
NOTE: At 100 Mb/s, the maximum cable distance between two repeaters is 5
meters (16.4 feet) while still allowing a maximum distance of 100 meters (328
feet) for repeater to workstation/server connections. At 10 Mb/s, the distance
between two repeaters can be up to 100 meters.

WARNING: The repeater has no power switch. Connecting the repeater to
the power source via the power cable’s three-pronged plug powers up the
repeater
2. Insert the three-pronged plug on the power cable into a non-switched,
grounded power outlet on a wall, a power strip, or a grounded extension
cord. When you plug the power cable into the power source, the PWR
A LED lights steady green.
NOTE: The power outlet should be near the repeater and easily accessible.

Disconnecting Power
To power down the repeater, disconnect the power cord from the nonswitched, grounded power outlet on the wall, power strip, or grounded
extension cord. The power cord is not a TUV-tested disconnect. Therefore do
not power down the repeater by disconnecting the power cord connector from
the back of the repeater.
Replacing the Power Supply
The power supply's modular design makes the supply easy to replace. If power
supply replacement is necessary, follow the instructions under “Installing a
Redundant Power Supply Module” in the next section.
Installing a Redundant Power
Supply Module
The repeater comes with a pre-installed, 90-watt power supply module (PWR
A). You can install an optional redundant power supply module (PWR B) for
backup power. Contact your authorized Compaq reseller for information about
ordering an additional power supply module or a replacement.
Follow these steps to install a redundant power supply module.
NOTE: You can install the redundant power supply module while the main power
supply module is powered on.
1.
Remove the two screws from the PWR B cover plate and remove the
plate. Be sure you keep the cover plate and screws in case you need
them for future use.
2.
Carefully insert the power supply module into the opening until its 10pin connector engages with the internal power connector and the face
of the module is flush with the repeater's back panel.
3.
Secure the power supply by tightening its two spring screws.

4. Plug the power cord into the connector on the new power supply
module.
5. Insert the power cord’s three-pronged plug into a non-switched,
grounded power outlet on a wall, a power strip, or a grounded extension
cord. When you connect power, the PWR B LED indicator lights green,
which means that the power supply module is installed and functioning
correctly.
NOTE: If the power supply module does not have power or is not functioning
correctly, the PWR B LED indicator lights yellow.
