Since we invented the automatic hook in 2006, our customers have identified the need for a smaller, lighter and more compact hook. Having listened we are now proud to present the new evo2. Weighing only 7Kg and having a working load limit of 2.500Kg the evo2 has additional features than its larger counterparts. Smaller, more compact, lighter, more efficient, more versatile… Smarter
The evo2 is an automatic crane hook, which, like its larger counterparts, hooks and releases the load remotely, increases safety, productivity and comfort of cargo lifting operations.
Elebia leads the way towards the future of crane hooks.
Small, compact, light & tough
We have created a crane hook lighter, smaller and more compact but equally as strong.
(3h Charge – 1 Weeks power)
With the new e-ink charge status display system and the new electronics autonomy and consumption are optimized.
The latch retracts automatically while the hook opens. This way, it remains hidden, protected and impacts are avoided during the hook operation.
The bearings allow the hook to rotate freely. The operator can lock it at every 90º position.
The evo2 incorporates an innovative position encoder. This allows the user to know the exact position of the motor, allowing better control. This results in longer motor life and safer operations. The sensor is contactless: no wearings and zero maintenance.
Motor clutch protected
The new evo2 automatic crane hook has its motor clutch protected. Thanks to this innovation, impacts on the crane hook will not be transmitted to the motor extending its lifespan.
Similar to the existing elebia automatic crane hook model, the evo2 has a failsafe design that makes impossible to drop the load while suspended. Both for geometry and for the motor, the hook will never drop the load if it’s not standing on the ground.
Elebia Automatic hooks come with a unique magnetic system, formed by 32 neodymium permanent magnets placed in a precise configuration to generate an orientated magnetic field. It has 3 functions: attract, center and orientate the masterlink. This component comes in all evo models, allowing remote engage of loads.
Some other options are available to be configured:
A sensor in the magnet indicates when the masterlink is attached to it. This info is displayed in the remote control. Units with the sensor can be configured in ‘Autoclose mode’: the hook will automatically close when the sensor detects the ring is in position. The sensor sensitivity / trigger level can be adjusted to customer needs.
Is good for: Applications when it is difficult to see the lifting point. Automated processes, as sensor info can be used by the PLC controlling the crane.
Void, no magnets
No magnetic system.
Is good for: applications when only remote release is needed.
All evo units can be upgraded with a load cell to weigh the load being lifted. Precise, reliable, rugged, compact and fully integrated into the autohook, no increase in weight and dimensions of the unit. Load cells can also be retrofitted to old evo models. It is good for preventing overloads.

The e2 Bumper
Meet the e2 BUMPER.
The latest accessory for our smallest automatic hook, designed to protect the e2 automatic hook from all sort of impacts, scratches and more.
The e2 bumper weighs 1,6 kgs. (3.52 lbs.)
Built from Polyurethane (PUR), rigid and durable enough to absorb multiple and heavy impacts.
The e2 bumper can work from temperature ranges of -20ºC/-4ºF to 90ºC/194ºF.
The e2 bumper is valid only for the e2 automatic hook, and is NOT recommended for ATEX hooks or hooks with counterbalance.
