pression appliquee sur le manometre

Explanation:
In the mechanics field, the "gage"/"gauge" is translated by "jauge". This is mostly used to measure dimensions. In your case, you have a specific type of meter; not simply a gage, but a pressure gage (your text only says "gage" because it is implied; it would be redundant to say "pressure is applied to the pressure gage"). The pressure gage/gauge is called "manometre" in mechanics and physics. So you can say "pression appliquee sur le manometre". The sentence that is not very clear to you means that whenever the switch is turned on, the air is taken out, meaning that pressure is applied, and when it is turned off, it gets filled with air again, and the pressure diminishes. The less air from the atmosphere you have, the higher the pressure.

Explanation:
On peut aussi dire:
La pression est appliquée à l'appareil à la mise sous tension. A la mise hors tension, la pression est relâchée (ou détendue) à l'atmosphère.
