Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9846055A1] The invention relates to a personal grounding arrangement in an electronic device. The grounding arrangement comprises a wrist part (11) that can be placed in contact with the user's skin, a conductive connecting lead (13) whose first end comprises a first connector (14) and whose second end can be connected to the wrist part so that a conductive path is established from the user's skin to the first connector, and a second connector in the body part (GB) of the electronic device, to which the first connector can be connected. To achieve a secure grounding point in an electronic device for personal grounding in a simpler and more economical way than previously, the second connector comprises a formed part (30) moulded from the body part of the electronic device, the formed part protruding from the plane of the body part and establishing a mating connector pair with the first connector (14) so that the first connector can be connected to the formed part by means of a snap connection.
