There are two ports on the side of the vacuum plate that select the two zones. The vacuum can be isolated to the 9x12 area or the full 12x18 area can be used under vacuum. If the 9x12 area is just required you would supply vacuum to one port, if the 12x18 area is desired you would use both. You have to apply vacuum to both ports to get the entire 12x18 area under vacuum.
