Explanation:
Not for points - just too much to put in a note to asker.

This is just an informed guess putting together a bit of the questions to asker and a bit of Web research.

One document I found uses the following terminology:

http://www.socomec.fr/catalogue/pdf_scp/Catec-DirisCountis-f...
le facteur de puissance (FP) avec l'indication du signe (L pour inductif et C pour capacitative)

In parallel, your exact sentence turns up the following manual:

http://www.eliteas.com/pml/PMLACFILES/7550_7650_User_Guide.p...

The picture of the screen on the first page shows the 3 expected values.

The 3rd value, "PF Sign Tot" shows an example value of 92.29 LG. I take the LG to mean lag as in Tony's note to asker. This must be the way the "sign" in question is shown on your particular model... Indeed, I now see elsewhere in the manual that there is an option to show this as LD/LG or +/- or CAP/IND:

Choose Power Factor symbols to be: LD/LG (lead/lag), +/– (positive/negative), or CAP/IND (capacitive/inductive). The default symbols are LD/LG.

A google search for "le facteur de puissance avec (l’) indication du signe" does not turn up much more than this one document with it expressed exactly like this.

But a few similar searches turned up the other suggestions.

le facteur de puissance avec l'indication du signe
le facteur de puissance avec signalisation du signe de la puissance
le facteur de Puissance avec indication du réseau inductif ou capacitif
le facteur de puissance avec indication inductive ou capacitative

Let's see if this inspires anyone...

agree  Tony M: Yes, but given this appears to be a 'numeric display screen', the most likely convention (in EN at least) is to use + and –
