Explanation:
It relates to varying rotation speeds - up to 100 revolutions per second (tournes par seconde).
Thus "the graduations applied can go up to 100 revs/second".
Possibly also "increments" (of speed) may fit.

disagree  Tony M: I am far from convinced that 'gradient' ever translates as 'graduation', and I also fail to see where that would apply in a context of motors? Moreover, as Daryo says, T = tesla, never 'tour' (usually abbreviated if at all to 'tr'.

disagree  Daryo: besides what "T" as a SI unit is, "rotations per second" is not a gradient it's just a plain speed [of rotation].

Explanation:
simply

noun

1. an inclined part of a road or railway; a slope.
"fail-safe brakes for use on steep gradients"
synonyms: slope, incline, hill, rise, rising ground, bank, ramp, acclivity; More

the degree of a slope.
"the path becomes very rough as the gradient increases"
synonyms: steepness, angle, slant, slope, inclination, leaning

MATHEMATICS
the degree of steepness of a graph at any point.

2. PHYSICS
an increase or decrease in the magnitude of a property (e.g. temperature, pressure, or concentration) observed in passing from one point or moment to another.

the rate of such a change.

MATHEMATICS
the vector formed by the operator ∇ acting on a scalar function at a given point in a scalar field

here the "gradient" is 100 T/s, i.e. Tesla per second, Tesla being the SI unit for the Magnetic Field Intensity so it's about some electrical equipment.

les gradients appliqués peuvent aller jusqu’à 100T/s
=
it is possible to apply gradients of up to 100T/s

meaning:

there are components in the electrical installation that can tolerate/sustain varying magnetic fields, as long as the rate of change is less than 100T/s

 Thanks!

agree  Tony M: Well spotted for 'Tesla'!
 2 hrs
-> Nikola Tesla being the only Serbian to have a SI unit named after him, it wouldn't do if I missed that bit! Especially given that the first results I got from Googling were about magnetic fields in transformers ...Thanks!

agree  Johannes Gleim: The applicable gradients can reach 100 rpm
