A MAU is a repeater device used to connect Token Ring devices into a physical star topology. Token Ring networks still maintain a logical ring topology when utilizing a MAU. There are two types of MAUs, active and passive. Active MAUs are electrically powered from a separate source and passive MAUs run on the power from the network connections.
