Vector 8500

The Carrier Vector Tier 4-compliant trailer refrigeration platform combines significant gains in overall efficiency with emissions compliance. The result—outstanding reliability and remarkable efficiency that deliver peace of mind and an improved bottom line.

Equipment up-time: Practical, simple solutions based on proven platforms maximize reliability to help you run your fleet more efficiently and deliver on time.

Driver retention: Simple user interface aids driver familiarity and reduces training. Quieter running systems increase driver comfort.

Reduced overhead: Powerful diagnostics speed troubleshooting, reduce technician training time and increase efficiency. Standardized parts reduce inventory.

Electric standby:  Designed into the Vector platform as a standard feature, fleets can save up to 70 percent on operating costs versus diesel operation when plugged in.

Vector systems are EPA-compliant in all 50 states. Electric standby is a CARB in-use compliance option for equipment that will operate in California beyond the initial seven-year period.
