The K2 power connector is a Switchcraft S-760, Mouser part number
502-S-760, page 700 in Catalog 619. The companion chassis jack, should
you want one, is a Switchcraft 722A, Mouser part number 502-722A.
These connectors use a 2.1 MM center pin.

and search for "S760". The plug dimension specs are at the bottom of this
page, and if you click on selection #2 (760/S760) from the list at the top
of the page, you can download a single-page PDF which shows to detailed
engineering drawing of the plug, with references which will match to the
specs on the page noted above.
I believe this to be the power plug which we are using on our K2s and K1s.
They ARE better quality than the plugs available from R/S, if for no other
reason that the fact that the center cunductor of the Switchcraft plugs is
slightly recessed within the insulator, thus making it more difficult to
accidently short the positive lead to ground.
The apparent R/S equivalent (at least with regard to dimensions, NOT
quality) is their 274-1569 (5.5 x 2.1 mm).
The apparent DigiKey part #'s are:
Plug SC-1052-ND (as Ron has stated)
Socket SC-1153-ND (the SC-1155-ND is SMT)
NOTE that the 1998 DigiKey catalog from which I got this info had the
Switchcraft part #'s for the plug and jack SWITCHED. However the DigiKey
web site (www.digikey.com) had everything listed correctly.
Users are urged to RETAIN this information for the future when you will
surely need it. And WILL eventually need it... almost guaranteed!
