Explanation:
The only convincing bilingual reference I found for this term suggested this for the FR term, though I remain somewhat sceptical.

The table in Asker's context refers to the power supply current consumption of this mobile (i.e. 12V) device for varying output powers, and also, for operation in 2-slot or 4-slot mode. It is clear that these '(time) slots' are associated with the time-domain multiplexing (TDMA) used in at least one of the operating modes for these devices.

In the sense of a 'time slot', Asker's own 'créneau' is perhaps quite close to the right idea; but as I said, the only real bilingual ref. I managed to unearth spoke of 'intervalle de temps' — but I hav to say I have the gravest doubts about the validity of this FR term, which certainly smacks of a too-literal translation from an almost certainly EN original source text.

Explanation:
Time division multiple access (TDMA) is a channel access method for shared medium networks. It allows several users to share the same frequency channel by dividing the signal into different time slots. The users transmit in rapid succession, one after the other, each using its own time slot. This allows multiple stations to share the same transmission medium (e.g. radio frequency channel) while using only a part of its channel capacity. TDMA is used in the digital 2G cellular systems such as Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), IS-136, Personal Digital Cellular (PDC) and iDEN, and in the Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) standard for portable phones. It is also used extensively in satellite systems, combat-net radio systems, and PON networks for upstream traffic from premises to the operator. For usage of Dynamic TDMA packet mode communication, see below.
TDMA is a type of Time-division multiplexing, with the special point that instead of having one transmitter connected to one receiver, there are multiple transmitters.

To solve the question I made a little detour to the German page. This is permitted, as this term has been standardized worldwide by IEC.

Zeitmultiplexverfahren/TDMA
Beim Zeitmultiplexverfahren (Abk. TDM für Time Division Multiplex oder TDMA für Time Division Multiple Access) werden in bestimmten Zeitabschnitten (Zeitschlitzen) die Daten (Signale) verschiedener Sender auf einem Kanal übertragen.
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeitmultiplexverfahren#Zeitmult...

UniLex Pro translates „Zeitschlitz“ as Zeitschlitz Maskulinum Fernmeldewesen / intervalle Maskulinum temporel, créneau Maskulinum temporel.

This coincides with

time slot
n créneau m horaire
→ 90 per cent of listeners had stayed with the programme when it changed its time slot.

Note 1 – In the case of a time-multiplex transmission, separate time slots are allocated to each individual signal.
Note 2 – In French, it is recommended to use the term “créneau temporel” instead of the term “intervalle de temps”, since the latter could lead to a confusion, in the same context, with the usual meaning of the term (in English “time interval”).

Abstract
L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil de remappage de données de canal, de multiples trames successives portant des données dans des créneau temporels sont reçues. Les créneaux temporels sont attribués à des canaux de manière que les données pour les canaux comprennent des données entrelacées. Les données provenant de trames successives multiples pour chaque créneau temporel sont accumulées. Les données accumulées sont mappées, par créneau temporel, de manière que les données soient accumulées afin de produire une carte utilisant une créneau temporel. Lesdites données sont remappées afin d'obtenir une carte utilisant un canal dans laquelle les données pour les canaux sont groupées ensemble par canal afin d'être reçues.

Abstract
A method and apparatus for remapping channel data are presented. Multiple successive frames carrying data in timeslots are received. The timeslots are assigned to channels so that data for the channels includes interleaved data. The data from the multiple successive frames for each of a predetermined number of the timeslots are aggregated. The aggregated data is mapped, by timeslot, in the order that the data is aggregated, to produce a timeslot-based map. The aggregated data of the timeslot-based map is remapped to produce a channel-based map in which the data for the channels are grouped together by channel in the order that the data were received.

Abstract
L'invention porte sur un système (20) et un procédé permettant des transmissions de paquets exemptes de collisions sur un canal, et permettant: de renforcer la limite supérieure du temps écoulé entre deux créneaux temporels consécutifs attribués au même noeud; de ne pas nécessiter de prise de contact anti-collision pour chaque transmission de paquets, et de ne pas nécessiter de préattribution de temps de transmission (créneaux) de transmission, de canaux, ou de codes. A cet effet, le temps est divisé en trames d'un nombre définis de créneaux pouvant elles-mêmes être organisées en cycles (époques).

Abstract
A system (20) and method is directed at providing collision-free transmission of packets into a channel, such that: an upper bound can be enforced for the time elapsed between two consecutive time slots assigned to the same node; no collision-avoidance handshake is required for each packet transmission, and no pre-assignment of transmission times (slots), or channels, or codes are required. Time is divided into frames consisting of a known number of time slots, and frames can be further organized into epochs.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_division_multiple_access

Le Time division multiple access (TDMA) ou Accès multiple à répartition dans le temps en français, est un mode de multiplexage permettant de transmettre plusieurs signaux sur un seul canal. Il s’agit de multiplexage temporel, dont le principe est de découper le temps disponible entre les différentes connexions (utilisateurs). Par ce moyen, une fréquence (porteuse) peut être utilisée par plusieurs abonnés simultanément.
Cette technologie est par exemple utilisée dans la norme GSM, où chaque porteuse (canal physique) supporte huit intervalles de temps (time slot) attribués à huit communications simultanées.

As supposed, either article says nothing about current or power.
