Vector 8500

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

  • E-Drive technology -  This patented hybrid design from Carrier combines a diesel engine, driect-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.
