Vector 8500


Vector 8500

Unmatched reliability, efficiency and value. The Vector 8500. Simply first. Simply better.

 

Vector 8500 Single Temperature Trailer Refrigeration Unit

  • E-Drive technology –  This patented hybrid design from Carrier combines a diesel engine, direct-driven generator and patented electric technology to deliver the highest reliability and lowest life-cycle cost in its class.

  • Unmatched reliability – The platform’s all-electric refrigeration system architecture has been refined and proven for more than a decade.

  • Lowest cost of ownership – By eliminating most moving parts, we’ve reduced maintenance requirements, offering unprecedented reliability and uptime.

  • EcoFORWARD technologies – System refinements for ultra high efficiencies deliever significant fuel savings, lower operating costs and compliance with 2013 EPA emissions regulations.

  • Intelligent operation – Vector units have the unique ability to turn components on when they’re needed, and off when they’re not.

  • Electric Standby – Standard with Vector units, this feature cuts fuel consumption, engine noise and emissions, while boosting operational savings.
