Title Apparatus Having Connection Module For Use With Electrical Module
Inventorship Shahram Montazeri, Newmarket (CA)

Claim of US Patent No. 9,907,195

1. An apparatus for use with an electrical module including a housing securely supporting and enclosing an electrical circuit,
a registration feature positioned on an outer surface of the housing, a circuit terminal supported by the housing, and the
circuit terminal being electrically connected to the electrical circuit, and a magnet securely supported by the housing, and
the circuit terminal being located atop, and being extended, at least in part, across, the magnet, and the apparatus comprising:
a connection module including:
a connection housing securely supporting and enclosing a connection electrical circuit; and
a connection registration feature positioned on an outer surface of the connection housing, and the connection registration
feature being configured to be in registered alignment with the registration feature once the electrical module is positioned
adjacent to the connection module just so; and

a connection circuit terminal being supported by the connection housing, and the connection circuit terminal being electrically
connected to the connection electrical circuit; and

a connection magnet securely supported by the connection housing; and
the connection circuit terminal being located atop, and being extended, at least in part, across, the connection magnet; and
the connection magnet being configured to be magnetically attracted to the magnet once the connection magnet and the magnet
are spatially positioned for such magnetic attraction in such a way that:

the connection circuit terminal electrically couples with the circuit terminal, in which the connection circuit terminal is
located atop and is extended, at least in part, across the connection magnet of the connection module, and in which the circuit
terminal is located atop and is extended, at least in part, across the magnet of the electrical module; and

electrical current is exchangeable between the connection circuit terminal of the connection module and the circuit terminal
of the electrical module once the connection circuit terminal, in use, electrically couples with the circuit terminal; and

the connection magnet being configured to be magnetically repelled from the magnet once the connection magnet and the magnet
are spatially positioned for such magnetic repulsion in such a way that:

the connection circuit terminal remains electrically uncoupled from the circuit terminal, in which the connection circuit
terminal is located atop and is extended, at least in part, across the connection magnet of the connection module, and in
which the circuit terminal is located atop and is extended, at least in part, across the magnet of the electrical module;
and

electrical current is not exchangeable between the connection circuit terminal of the connection module and the circuit terminal
of the electrical module.
