French term or phrase: PA (as in vacuum cleaners)
From a a vacuum-cleaner description ("Duo utilise la technologie Cyclone qui allie puissance (dépression: 16500 pa) et faible consommation électrique (600 W).")

I guess "dépression" means "suction pressure", but can't work out if "pa" just means "atmospheric pressure" or something more complex...

Thanks!
