Can anyone tell me what this cable is called?

Looksto me like it's a coaxial cable, with some form of connector on it? A side on view might help. What's written on the cable sheath?

It's a coaxial cable for high frequency signal transmission, but I'm not familiar with that particular coax connector.

Where would I find a 7kv (high voltage) power supply that I would connect to this cable? or would most power supply’s be compatible?
If I wanted a low current 7.0 KV supply I would be looking at Hi Pot Testers. A Google of "Hi Pot testers" should bring up a dozen hits of both AC and DC units.

Yes, and thank you. The commenter after you did not.

Reminds me of FaceBook groups where a hundred comments follow an authoritive answer, either repeating what has already been said, or blindly saying something completely wrong without ever reading the correct answer.

It's kind of like "I see a hundred people replied, but I'm sure I know more than any of them and that nobody has answered correctly yet."

That post is no longer visible—mentioned to clear up future confusion.

LEMO connectors are very expensive top of the line kind of stuff. I'm not entirely certain it would be a good idea to even try. That said: "man's reach should exceed his grasp".

I picked up this equipment online and would like to test it out, i'm not sure how to connect it to a suitable power source. How would you recommend connecting it? i only need a low voltage power supply around 9v. What is my best course of action?

Perhaps you could post pictures of what you're trying to connect? First it was 7000 volts, now it's 9 volts. This connector/cable makes no sense to connect a 9 volt power supply.

The equipment didn't come with specification datasheet, i want to make sure i don't damage the equipment and ensure safety
