XT/AT-cable with pcb connection

I need a replacement cable of XT/AT-male type and a connection to the pcb, shown in the following picture. I am not quite sure how common this type of connection to the pcb is, maybe I have to solder something. It is a cable from a Datacomp DFK 192 keyboard.

The above requested keyboard is from "Inputronic" or "Solid Year". I have never heard of them and seems to have an AT-connector. But I am totally unsure if it is rubberdome or not.
