Automatic crane hook
With the evo range of lifting hooks for cranes, elebia, the market leader in automatic lifting solutions will boost the safety and productivity of your cranes. The patented evo automatic hooks range from the 2.5 tons capacity of the evo2 crane hook to 25 tons capacity and allow you to hook on and release any load remotely.
Our evo5-evo25 crane lifting hook selection has been designed with one purpose: to bring our customers multiple options that can fit the needs of the heaviest lifting operations. No matter what kind of cargo you need to carry, it will be easy for you to find the perfect solution.
The patented range of safety hooks are equipped with a magnet in its lower section. When the magnet is close to the load, it attracts and correctly positions the sling. The operator pushes the control button, the hook closes, catches the ring and lifts the load without any additional handling.
The automatic crane hooks work with cable slings, chains slings, master links, textile slings and even big bags. And with the unique elebia automatic hook, you will be able to pick up and release loads remotely, avoiding any handling and moving, minimising risks, enhancing safety and increasing productivity.
How Does It Work?
The evo automatic lifting hooks attach and release the load remotely. The remote controlled crane hooks generate a magnetic field that
- Attracts the rigging gear or lifting accessory
- Orients it
- Centers it
The operator then presses the “close” button on the remote control to automatically close the lifting hooks for cranes, without any manual intervention, and operating remotely from a safe distance.
A sensor in the magnet indicates when the ring is in position. All this information is recorded in the eMAX remote control that acts as a hub gathering all the information and recording all the activity of the hook.
The high-capacity battery to improve efficiency and minimise energy consumption of the hook. The battery is fully charged in 3 hours, and allows up to 5,000 cycles or 250 hours in standby mode.
The new gearmotor allows you to release up to 20kgs. (40.09 lbs.) There will be no more problems with heavy rigging and with the precise electronic torque control, you can adjust the release limit. It is also clutch protected from overloads.
Designed to work in the toughest conditions (steelworks, ports, low temperatures) and built with the best materials. WELDOX body of high strength steel, forged hook type T or V.
Just like the rest of our bigger automatic hooks, the evo2 is designed under a fail-safe principle that makes it impossible to drop a suspended load. Due to its geometry and its motor, the safety hook will never drop the load if it's not placed correctly on a horizontal surface.
The elebia crane hooks come with a unique magnetic system, formed by 32 neodymium permanent magnets. These magnets are placed in a precise configuration that generate an oriented magnetic field with 3 functions: attract, center and orient the masterlink. This basic component, which is present in all our remote hooks, is what allows the remote engage of loads.
The complete range of automatic crane hooks can be upgraded with a load cell to weigh the load that is being lifted. This cargo cell is precise, reliable, compact and fully integrated into the safety hook, representing no increase in weight or dimensions of the unit. The load cell is recommended for preventing overloads and for load control. Load cells can also be retrofitted into older models of our hooks. The load cell in combination with the eMAX remote control transforms all of our crane hooks into a precise weighing scale with advanced features.
An acoustic alarm & warning can be configured if necessary, and it will trigger itself under the following scenarios:
- When exceeding the load capacity and/or pre-set weight limit of the Warning on the eMAX remote control set in Settings > Emax > Scale > Alarms > Warning (On) > Value > (Set value)
- In case of an unbalanced load, configured on the Differential of the eMAX remote control, set in Settings > Emax > Scale > Alarms > Differential (On) > Value > (Set value)
In both cases, the acoustic alarm & warnings (buzzer, vibrator) will deactivate themselves automatically once the excess weight is ammended and/or when the load is correctly balanced.
The innovative position encoder has been integrated into the complete range of evo lifting hooks for cranes. As a result, this represents an added safety element in all lifting operations. The encoder highlights a technical upgrade of our remote hooks, as it allows to know the exact angular position of the hook at any given moment thanks the information relayed to the eMAX remote control.
This important feature comes in very handy in operations where the operator can not see the hook's position. The automatic hook's status is displayed on the eMAX remote control, transmitting real time information to the operator.
With the position encoder and the eMAX remote control, the user is always aware of the hook's status (open/closed) and is informed with the buzzer/vibrator and display features of the eMAX if the load is not placed correctly on the safety hook. (e.g. tip of the hook)
With the specifications of this advanced feature, the chances of impacts are reduced, the life-span of the motor and clutch increase and most importantly, safety is enhanced in all lifting operations.
The position encoder can be retrofitted into older units of the complete range of evo lifting hooks for cranes (except for versions with a spring loaded latch).
Simply open and close the automatic crane hooks or receive real-time information of weight, battery level, and other values of the lifting and manoeuvreing operation. As with the rest of our lifting products, the automatic crane hook can be paired to the eMAX, eMINI and/or eINST installable remote controls. All of them allow a simple, flexible, precise and reliable control in a fail-safe way.
Bumpers with LEDs
With safety always in mind, the new evo5-evo25 Bumper, which protects the hooks from impacts, now also carries a LED status indicator, which shows the lifting hook's status at all times with a 4 colour colour-code scheme visible from the operator's position. Built from flexible silicone rubber with 70 shore A hardness, rigid and durable enough to absorb multiple and heavy impacts. The bumper with LEDs can work from temperature ranges of -40ºC to 200ºC / -40ºF to 392ºF. Reinforced battery cover.
The new evo5 to evo25 bumper with LEDs can be retrofitted into older units and has a very simple installation.
The bumper for the automatic lifting hooks is the perfect shock absorber that protects the safety hooks from impacts, scratches and day-to-day wear. Built from flexible silicone rubber with 70 shore A hardness, rigid and durable enough to absorb multiple and heavy impacts. The bumper can withstand temperature ranges of -40ºC to 200ºC / -40ºF to 392ºF. Reinforced battery slot protection to prevent the battery from accidentally falling.
The evo5 to evo25 bumper can be retrofitted into older units and has a very simple installation.
