Explanation:
In general, a Geber can be a sensor, a transducer, or a transmitter. A Fahrgeber can be an accelerator pedal, but it can also be a joystick-type speed (& fwd-reverse) control.

Since your context is trailers, an accelerator pedal seems unlikely, so I would guess a sensor/transducer, in this case a speed sensor or transducer. The % Bereich part probably means what is called 'proportional (response) range' or 'proportional region' in English (i.e., the range in which the output signal from the sensor/transducer is proportional to the quantity being sensed)
