I can't tell exactly what you're talking about from the picture and description, but your vacuum system does the following:

Provides power assist for the brakes
Tells the transmission when to shift
Makes the central locking system work
Cruise Control
Climate controls

That's all I can think of...If there's something more you need to know, please post a more specific question and photo.

Hope that helps,
