It might well be. I've not seen a maker's name on the moulding.

The panel-mount ones I've seen had little plastic clips moulded into them
to lock into the hole on the panel. It's easy to cyt those off if you
want to turn a panel-mount into a free-hanging one.

In this case, the connector is used in-line, it's not panel mounted. On
the rear panel of the 9810/9820 are mounted most of the 'mains'
components -- the power transformer, fan, mains filter, fuseholders,
mains in/out connectors. A 4 way screend cable (rated to carry mains) is
connected to this lot, and runs down the side of the case. On the front
end of it is the socket half of this connector (the 5 pins being 2 for
mains in, 2 for mains out to the transformer, and a ground for the
screen). Another length of similar cable is wired to the plug half of the
connector, the other end of that coonnects to the (double pole) mains
switch on the front of the keyboard assembly.

No, it's not PCB mounted.
What I want to do is wire up a plug housing with the appropriate pairs of
pins linked together to simulate a turned-on power switch. Then I can
plug that into the end of the cable from the transformer assemnbly, and
power up the machine with the keyboard totally removed (using the switch
on the mains socket outlet to turn it on/off). Since it's mains, I want
to get the right housing, rather than use bare pins covered in
heat-shrink or something.

Easily enough (as you'd expect from HP at that time). The transformer has
a mains fuse (1A for 2330V mains, 2A for 115V mains). There's also a 6A
mains input fuse 'before' this connector.
Now all I need to do is find a source.
