It's an 8-pin female connector connecting powermax kollmorgen stepper motor to a driver.

What is the spacing of the pins?  Looks like it might be a 0.1" spaced 8x1 female IDC connector.

2.54mm


Ever wonder why they picked such an odd spacing?  Why not 2 mm or even 2.5 mm?

25.4 mm = 1 inch

2.54 mm = 0.1 inch

So the connector is a .1 inch (2.54 mm) grid 1x8 female header as I suspected.

Yep, that use to be pretty common for countries that manufacture stuff to use the measurement system that their country is most comfortable with. Metric is gaining even in the US, but I don't think we will convert to metric 100% bolts and nuts, at least not in my lifetime.

We (Aus) converted in the 70s but still many things are imperial. For example a 1200x2400 sheet of ply is really 1220x2440 (the old 8x4').

That said you have to check because some materials really are metric and you order an "8x4" sheet and get something 1200x2400, bummer if you have designed something with a 1220 pitch.
