Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2803389A1] The invention concerns a test connector (50) comprising at least a contact tip (51) designed to be urged in contact with a contact point of a connecting terminal in contact with the electrical conductors of the corresponding electrical installation, said contact tip (51) being adapted to pick up an electric signal. The invention is characterised in that automatic magnetic-type retaining means are provided using a permanent magnet (53). The associated equipment comprises an inventive test connector (51) and a housing (61) provided with powering means (66) and means for sensing (67) the signal picked up by the contact point (51) of the test connector. The associated system comprises an inventive equipment further provided with means transmitting (68) a signal representing the signal picked up on the test contact tip and a receiver housing (80) containing means (82) adapted to receive the representative signal transmitted by the test equipment. The invention provides the advantage of simplifying operations controlling and automatically maintaining all types of electric installations through the simple and inexpensive automatic means for maintaining the connector and optionally for automatically transmitting data sensed on the contact tip of the test connector.
