I'm pretty sure this isn't AMP, but it looks like a Molex 0.093" Power
Connector.  A lot of these are made in panel-mount as well as
free-hanging styles, but the five-way is only made as free-hanging
according to my old Molex catalogue.  However, it says there's a mating
unshrouded vertical header in their 1840 series, and "vertical headers
may be assembled using PC tail terminals in standard housing".  The
receptacle part is 03-09-1052, it's 27.2mm long x 6.2mm wide; the plug
part is 03-09-2052, 30.0mm long x 8.6mm wide.  Each pin is rated 9A at
250V in these housings.
