Unité combinée
Explanation:
Nela:

Combination unit is a fairly general term, and it is probably best to stay literal.
"unité" refers to a mass-produced item. Another term is "bloc" which is a sub-assembly of a larger machine, as in "bloc-moteur".
Combination carries the meaning that it is a multiple purpose machine, as in a diesel-natural gas generator. This would be "combinée", as in "outil combiné, échelle combinée". Another suggestion is "mixte".

Explanation:
enter this at www.metacrawler.com

Appliance could be in sense of 'application', then translate by : 'application'

or 'means/tool to be used' etc, then you should translate it by: 'appareil' or 'moyen', 'ressource', 'expédient'

Depends on your context.

Unité de combinaison

Otherwise I don't see a real problem here ?
