“Designed especially for supermarkets, produce warehouses, food distribution centers and other businesses that use refrigerated trailers for on-site cold storage, the innovative Vector 8100 unit provides quiet electric operation without the noise, emissions and fuel consumption associated with diesel-powered units,” said Mark Fragnito, product manager at Carrier Transicold. “As the newest member of Carrier Transicold’s enhanced Vector family, it joins the highly efficient Vector 8500 single-temperature and the Vector 8600MT multi-temperature models, both of which are designed for over-the-road transport and compliance with EPA Tier 4.”

The Vector platform features E-Drive all-electric refrigeration technology, which means refrigeration and heating operations are 100% electric. The latest Vector models use an efficient and fully sealed electric scroll compressor that has 70% fewer moving parts and is 200 lbs. lighter than the reciprocating compressor it replaces. This contributes to a 13% weight reduction for the Vector 8100 unit.

The Vector 8100 also adds the APXTM control system, featuring a large illuminated dashboard display that provides on-screen temperature graphing, and a USB dock to facilitate data downloads and software uploads. The standard Vector 8100 configuration requires a 460-volt power supply. Units may also be equipped with Carrier Transicold’s optional Flex Power dual voltage option, which enables compatibility with 208- to 230-volt sources.
