    \$\begingroup\$ I see the question was down-voted and also there are currently three votes to close. But isn't this at least a valid component ID question? Please consider if maybe we are being too rash to close and downvote this question. \$\endgroup\$ – mkeith Feb 19 at 2:20

  • \$\begingroup\$ if you can produce set of higher resolution pictures from all faces of this connector, maybe someone can identify the manufacturer. \$\endgroup\$ – Ariser Feb 20 at 5:21

the board connector looks like JST PH series

The rest of the cable looks like half of a T568B CAT5 patch calble

the presence of un-used conductors in the cable makes this almost certainnly custom. someone has cut a patch cable in half and connected five of the conductors to the JST connector, trimmed the others back and put heat-shrink over that.
