An electrical connector comprises a plug part 2 of rotationally symmetric cross-section and generally cylindrical form, and a socket part 3 adapted to receive the plug part and to allow it to rotate about its axis. The socket part includes at least one electrical contact 20,22 adapted to bear continuously against the plug part as the latter rotates, while the plug part includes an extension member 42 adapted for attachment to a motor in order to perform the said rotation. The socket part has an aperture allowing access to the said attachment means of the plug part, in particular to fix the motor. The connector can be used in suspended ceilings to support rotating illuminated signs. <IMAGE>
