The Glaspaleis (glass palace) is one of the 13 most important architectural monuments in the Netherlands. The building opened in 1935 as ‘Modehuis Schunck’ (shopping-mall). The Heerlen architect, Frits P.J. Peutz (1896-1974) proved to be a true innovator: he ‘packed’ his ‘stacked market’ in glass, with a large transparent glass-coated façade in fine metal profiles. The construction, visible from the outside, consists of beamless floors resting on white mushroom columns. The open and transparent Glaspaleis became the architectural eye-catcher of Heerlen. Since 2003, following impressive renovations under the management of architects Jo Coenen and Wiel Arets (in a joint-venture with Buro Bouwkunde: ABBC), it has gained new purpose: cultural institutions (cinema, music school, public library and town gallery) and Vitruvianum (centre for architecture in the Euregion Maas-Rhine), provide a varied programme full of music, film, dance, literature, expressive art and architecture.

Pitot all kinds of sensor is used to measure the speed of the airplane. It is a differential Pressure Sensor . It measures the difference between a static port (not in the air stream) and a Pitot tube which is directly placed in the path of Nagano keiki Pressure sensor air flow.When the plane is stationary, the pressure in both the tubes is equal and abs speed sensor the air speed is zero. When the plane is moving, air enters the pitot mazda 6 suction control valve . This causes the pressure difference between the suction control valve and the pitot tube. An internal amplifier creates an amplified voltage output and hence the sensor can be connected directly to Speed Sensor and data acquisition systems. The output voltage changes with the difference in pressure between the two ports.VW & AUDI SERIES
