The e2 automatic hook

Since we invented the automatic hook in 2006, our customers have identified the need for a smaller, lighter and more compact automatic hook. Having listened, we are now proud to present the e2 automatic hook. Weighing only 7 kgs./15,43 lbs. and with a working load limit of 2.500 kgs./5.511 lbs, the e2 has additional features than its bigger counterparts. Smaller, more compact, lighter, more efficient, more versatile… Smarter!

The e2 is an automatic crane hook, which, like the rest of the range of our automatic hooks, hooks on and releases the load remotely, increasing safety, productivity and comfort of all cargo lifting operations.

elebia® leads the way towards the future of automatic crane hooks.

Small, Compact, Light & Tough

We have created an automatic hook that is lighter, smaller and more compact but equally as strong.

(3 hour charge – 1 weeks power)

With the new Eink charge status display system and new electronics, autonomy and consumption are optimized.

Automatic Latch

The latch retracts automatically while the e2 automatic hook opens. This way, it remains hidden, protected and impacts are avoided.


Swivel with Bearings

The bearings allow the hook to rotate freely. The operator can lock it at every 90º position.



The e2 automatic hook incorporates an innovative position encoder. This allows the user to know the exact position of the hook, allowing better control. This results in longer motor life and safer operations. The sensor is contactless: no wearings and zero maintenance.

Clutch Protected Motor

The new e2 automatic crane hook has its motor clutch protected. Thanks to this innovation, impacts on the automatic hook will not be transmitted to the motor extending its lifespan.


Failsafe Design

Just like the rest of our bigger automatic hooks, the e2 is designed under a failsafe principle that makes it impossible to drop a suspended load. Due to its geometry and its motor, the automatic hook will never drop the load if it’s not placed correctly on a horizontal surface.

Magnetic System

The elebia® automatic hooks come with a unique magnetic system, formed by 32 neodymium permanent magnets 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 automatic hooks, is what allows the remote engage of loads..
Some other options are available to be configured:

More info.

Magnet Sensor

A sensor in the magnet indicates when the masterlink is attached to it. This info is displayed in the eMAX remote control. Units with the magnet sensor can be configured in ‘Autoclose Mode’: the hook will automatically close when the magnet sensor detects the ring is in position. The magnet sensor’s sensitivity/trigger level can be adjusted to customer needs.

Recommended for: Applications when it is difficult to see the lifting point. Automated processes, as the magnet sensor info can be used by the PLC controlling the crane.

Void, No Magnets

No magnetic system.

Recommended for: Applications when only a remote release is needed.

Weighing Scale

The complete range of automatic hooks can be upgraded with a load cell to weigh the load that is being lifted. This load cell is precise, reliable, rugged, compact and fully integrated into the hook, representing no increase in weight or dimensions of the unit. The load cell is highly 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 hooks into a precise weighing scale with advanced features.

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.
