This is the same accessory cable found in the LIDAR-Lite v3. The LIDAR-Lite Accessory Cable is terminated with a simple 6-pin JST at one end and a bare wire pigtail at the other. You can use this cable as a replacement to the one you are currently using, as a backup in case of damage, or if you just need a second one.
The LIDAR-Lite Accessory Cable is 200mm (~7.8in) long with specific pin-outs found on the second page of the Operation & Technical Manual below.

Cable has the correct mating connector for LIDAR-Lite. Bare wire leads were tinned. That was was a nice surprise, it saved some time with initial bread boarding. Wire diameter when tinned is a somewhat loose fit for standard breadboard however, so you may want to solder a breadboard pin onto the wire if you plan to use it that way.
