Explanation:
A bit tricky without more context. If it were 'Anzeigeneigung', I would say 'display tilt' (the tilt of the display unit). but with 'Anzeige-Neigung', expecially followed by '0-20% analog", I am inclined to agree with M. Decker that this means that the slope of the belt is displayed as an analogue value with a range of 0 to 20%. (somewhat telegraphic German, in any case)

analogue display, range 0-20 %


Explanation:
It would seem that the percentage inidicates the slope, a diplay correction of 20 % seems to be a lot and would mean that the meter is quite unreliable
