That is a 62PC I don't know of any 370 systems that used them, I think 
the closed they came to a mainframe was they where used in the 8130 and 
8140 systems.  There was also at least one in every S/38, in the later 
days of S/38 it was usually only one with the system microcode on it and 
it was run isolated from the rest of the disk storage because of their 
tendency to die suddenly.  I believe that 62PCs where also used in S/34 
and Series/1.
