lifting equipment / hoisting devices, etc. (see below)


Explanation:
In full, "For 120-watt lifting equipment, (please) refer to the diagram."

For "appareils de levage," Ernst gives "hoisting or lifting devices, apparatus, tackle, or gear." ("Appliances" is incorrect in this context, because it connotes small household devices, medical prostheses, and items of theatrical make-up.)
