NOTE: The IEEE 802.3 standard states that the shield of a coax trunk cable shall make electrical contact with an earth reference once and only once per segment. Failure to provide an earth ground to a 10BASE- 2 or 10BASE-5 segment may allow ambient RF energy to couple onto the cable shield, resulting in intermittent network failure. More than one ground per segment may allow a potential difference between the two grounds to cause current to flow, damaging components. And, since Ethernet senses collisions on 10BASE-2 and 10BASE-5 cable by monitoring the shield voltage level, more than one ground could cause false collisions that result in repeater ports partitioning and network traffic beyond the partition ceasing.

10BASE-2 Requirements

Thinnet 10BASE-2 cable “daisy-chains” network devices.

With a maximum segment length of 185 meters and a minimum segment length of 0.5 meters, the coaxial cable must have a 50 ohm characteristic impedance. Standard BNC connectors and "T's" provide access to the media, typically connected directly to the back of network interface cards, eliminating the need for an external transceiver.

Only 30 transceivers can be installed onto a 10BASE-2 Ethernet segment, spaced at least 0.5 meters apart. The first and last device in the daisy-chain must be terminated with a 50 ohm terminator, grounded to “earth ground” at one end.

10BASE-5 Requirements

Thicknet 10BASE-5 cable is the original Ethernet.

With a maximum segment length of 500 meters and a minimum segment length of 1.5 meters,the coaxial cable must have a 50 ohm characteristic impedance.

As many as 100 transceiver can be installed onto a 10BASE-5 Ethernet segment, spaced at least 2.5 meters apart. There must be a type N 50 ohm terminator installed at each end of a thick coaxial cable segment.

10-Mb/s Baseband Network Configuration Guidelines

Ethernet 802.3 specifications define network configuration guidelines for the 10-Mb/s baseband network:

10BASE-T, 10BASE-2, and 10BASE-5 cable segments can be installed as a single Ethernet collision domain if the cable segments are connected using repeaters.

When connecting LANMaster T8 repeater hubs, the transmission path between any two Data Terminating Equipment (DTE) network devices can consist of no more than five segments. (A segment is the independent network cable connection between repeaters or between repeaters and network devices.)

To verify the network configuration by assigning segment numbers to cable connections:

1.Determine the two terminals in the network which are separated by the greatest number of segments.

2.Assign a segment path between the terminals by labeling the cable connected to one of the terminals “segment 1” and the segment connected

to the other terminal “segment n” (n = total number of segments 5).

3.To verify that no segment paths contain more than n segments, assign segment paths and numbers to all other terminals.

4.Verify than no more than three of the segments are 10BASE-2 or 10BASE-5 with multiple stations attached.
