Abstract (en)

A safety connector for a table-top household electrical appliance, formed by a socket member (3) mounted in the appliance and a plug member (2) complementary to the socket member (3), and having magnets that allow a plugged-in position to be maintained and separation of both parts under an abnormal strain exerted on the plug member. The socket member (3) comprises pins (14) and a grounding arrangement (20), with a magnet arrangement (15) and two active armatures (16) between them. The plug member (2) comprises two flexible electrical contacts (7), spatially mating with the pins (14). An iron plate member (11) as passive armature is located between the electrical contacts (7) and when making connection, it faces the active armatures (16) of the magnet (15) and makes contact with the ground (20). <IMAGE>
