DC37 was used for the external floppy on PC/5150 and XT/5160
For the PS/2, IBM had  an adapter to bring that out.

DC37 was also used on the Canon CX-VDO laser printers.
My Cordata used DC37, and so did my JLASER and EiconScript (Postscript 
and PCL) interface card,  so I had ANOTHER DC37 A/B/C/D switch for my 
laser printer.
