All Icom HF and HF/VHF transceivers (except for the IC-701) provide an analogue band-selection voltage in the range 0 ~ +8V. This voltage serves to band-switch external Icom accessories such as the Icom IC-2KL and IC-4KL HF solid-state amplifiers, the Icom IC-AT100, IC-AT150 and IC-AT500 auto-tuners and Icom EX-627 antenna selector.This Voltage / Band Selection technologies are UNIQUE for Icom, Kenwood, and Yaesu -- NOT PLUG-n-PLAY.
Icom (Voltage Level), Yaesu (BCD and Voltage Level), and Kenwood (Serial or BCD via Logging Program).
Elecraft provides a potential interconnection solution, for band data.

To the later DIN 7-pin and 8-pin female connector, used on Icom radios.http://members.bellatlantic.net/~vze3rys4/
These cables are sold on eBay: seller - w2eny.
