Please help identify this tie-in plug

My guess is hubbell of some sort but the said it was a 100amp tie-in and wasn't sure that type of cable would hold that load.
Any ids or points in the right direction would be extremely helpful.

That's a CS- series, non-NEMA device, 3 pole 4 wire. Should be a number on it, did you verify voltage? I can't positively match the directions of the slots on the face in your image. It's one of these: http://www.hubbellon...t/pdf/h/h34.pdf If what they are saying is correct, then the mating plug would be a CS-6365. Tie-in would be through 6ga feeder, 50a per leg.
The (CS6369A) seems to be the one. There was nothing written on any of the electric and the location, more of a concert venue than studio, had no idea what the plug was except that crews 'usually tie-in here'.
There was a small bit of writing that helped me deduce it was wired to (2) 50amp breakers in the main box, which is where they came up with 100amps.
Thank you for your responses.

Most commonly found in use at: convention centers; hotel ballrooms/conference rooms; construction sites. Usually feeds a spider box, like these: http://cepnow.com/pd_g-series.htm
Anyone have an idea of where to find this type connection and complimentary spider box or variant around Los Angeles?

Just last week, I saw a portable stage that was fed with feeders and spider boxes, from a 40kw generator (Multipquip) that had panel mounted CS type connectors instead of camloks. So setups like this are in use.
