The DECmau 900TL is a Token Ring Multistation Access Unit (MAU). As a member
of Digital’s Token Ring product family, it operates in a DEChub 900 MultiSwitch, or a
single-slot hub (DEChub ONE MAU 900TL). The MAU connects up to eight stations
using 100-ohm shielded or unshielded cable with RJ45 connectors, and 150-ohm
IBM Type 1 data cable using an impedence matching transformer cable. It operates
at 4 or 16 Mb/s and incorporates speed detection. The MAU can also be managed
by optional HUBwatch management software.

Notes:
The DECmau 900TL has speed detect, which
ensures the integrity of the network. At startup, a
MAU determines the ring speed based on the
speed settings of the majority of the stations on the
ring and the Ring Out port. In a hub, the MAU then
connects to the appropriate ring in the hub. After
startup, speed detect prevents stations with the
wrong speed setting from connecting to the network.

Installing a MAU in a DEChub 900 MultiSwitch
When you install a MAU in a DEChub 900 MultiSwitch, you do not have to turn off the hub power.
1 Remove the single-slot hub (if necessary).
If you want to install a DEChub ONE MAU 900TL in a hub,
you need to remove the single-slot hub.
a. Loosen the screw on the single-slot
hub until it disengages.
b. With one hand holding the front of
the MAU, and your other hand
holding the single-slot hub,
carefully pull the two units apart.
2
a. Align the MAU’s 48-pin connector
with any available 48-pin slot on the
hub.

1 Mount MAU (optional).
You can place the MAU on a table, mount it on a wall, or mount it in a standard 19-inch rack
using a shelf assembly, Digital part number H9544-MS.
For a wall mounting, position two screws 19.7 centimeters (7.75 inches) apart on the wall. Turn
screws until tight and then back off two turns. Hang the MAU using the keyholes.
2 Set Autowrap switches.
a. Set the Ring In and the Ring Out Autowrap
switches to 1 or 0.
b. Set the switch to 1 to enable Autowrap
when the Ring In or Ring Out port
connects to a device with Digital’s Auto
wrap, there is only one MAU in the
network, or the port is not connected to
the network. Otherwise, set the switch to
0 to disable Autowrap.

LED Summary
The LEDs indicate status by being on, off, and flashing. Flashing LEDs indicate special situations.
There are two flashing patterns and a scroll pattern. When an LED indicates a continuous single-flash
pattern, network management has disabled the port. A continuous double-flash pattern indicates the
wrong speed. In a scroll pattern, the LEDs turn on and off in a set order.

Lobe lengths for Digital’s MAUs exceed the industry guideline. Specifically, lobe lengths can be longer
than the industry guideline for STP cable and UTP level 5 cable at 4 Mb/s. See Table 2, Digital Lobe
Length Guideline, for the maximum lobe lengths for Digital’s MAUs. Also refer to either “DEChub 900

distances include patch cables and hub connections.
Digital recommends that you keep lobe lengths within the maximums found in the industry guideline
whenever possible. This allows for future network expansion and upgrade. When current needs
dictate the longer lobe lengths, you can increase lobe lengths up to the maximums in Digital’s guideline
without any negative effect on the network.
DEChub 900 MultiSwitch Configuration
Multiple Hubs
A repeater is needed in each hub to connect hubs in a multiple hub network. Refer to the
appropriate Token Ring repeater manual for specific information.
DEChub ONE Configurations
Unshielded Twisted-Pair Cable Configurations:
Multiple MAUs in One Wiring Closet at 16 Mb/s
At 16 Mb/s, a maximum of five MAUs can be in one wiring closet without affecting maximum lobe
length. Subtract 10 meters from the lobe lengths in Table 2 for each additional MAU above five in a
wiring closet.
Multiple Wiring Closets
Digital recommends that you use repeaters to segment the ring in a network with multiple wiring
closets. In some situations, only one, or no repeaters, are required. Refer to the appropriate
Token Ring repeater manual for specific information.

Cabling (continued)
Digital recommends that you use repeaters to segment the ring in a network with multiple wiring
closets. In some situations, only one, or no repeaters, are required. Refer to the appropriate Token
Ring repeater manual for specific information.
When distances exceed the lobe lengths in Table 2, or if the MAU does not have Digital’s Autowrap
functionality, two repeaters are required.
When a MAU has Autowrap enabled, only one repeater is required per wiring closet if the distance
between the wiring closets does not exceed the distances shown in Table 2.
With UTP level 5 cable at 4 Mb/s, no repeaters are required with multiple wiring closets if the total cable
budget is within the distances shown in Table 3.
For UTP level 3 cable at 4 Mb/s, divide all distances in Table 3 by 1.3.
