The two connection elements (100, 200) are able to be coupled to one another according to a coupling axis and comprise at least one pin and at least one respective contact, a locking mechanism (104, 218) comprising at least one locking pin (104) arranged on a body of the first connection element (100) and at least one locking ring (216) mounted rotatingly around a body of the second connection element (200) and comprising a locking groove (218) with an outlet (236) and a locking notch (238), means for indexing making it possible to position the bodies in relation to one another around the coupling axis in an indexed configuration. The second connection element (200) comprises a safety ring (220) mounted axially mobile in relation to the locking ring (216) and comprising at least one safety catch (234). In addition, the safety ring (220) is able to be pushed back by the locking pin (104) during coupling between, a first position, wherein the safety catch (234) blocks the passage of the pin towards the outlet (236), and a second position, wherein the safety catch (234) authorises the passage of the pin, with the safety ring (220) being drawn back elastically to its first position. In addition, each locking groove (218) comprises at the front, a chamfer delimiting the outlet and the rotation range of the locking ring is limited. Finally, in the indexed configuration of the bodies, the axis of travel (X4-X4) of the pin (104) intersects the outlet (238) over the entire the rotation range of the locking ring.
