Really the H6180 looks a lot more like the DPS-8 I remember. We had a single CPU Dev system, and a 4 CPU Production system running GCOS-8. I thought I might have some drawings of the panels, but if I do they’re in the garage somewhere. Another site, had a DPS-8000, our site was pretty old, and had been upgraded over time. For example the memory cabinets were mostly empty, due to upgrades.
