Crane Hooks: The evo2
Since we invented the automatic hook in 2006, our customers have identified the need for smaller, lighter and more compact crane hooks.
Having listened, we are now proud to present the evo2 automatic hook. Weighing only 7 kg./15.43 lbs. and with a working load limit of 2,500 kg./5,511 lbs., the evo2 remote release hook has additional features than its bigger counterparts. Smaller, more compact, lighter, more efficient, more versatile… Smarter!
The evo2 is an automatic crane hook which, like the rest of the range of our lifting hooks for cranes, hooks on and releases the load remotely, increasing safety, productivity and comfort of all cargo lifting operations.
The evo2 automatic crane hook lifts and releases the load remotely. The remote controlled crane hook generates a magnetic field that attracts and orients the sling, masterlink or rigging gear. The operator then presses the “close” button on the remote control to automatically close the crane hook, without any manual intervention, operating remotely from a safe distance.
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.
The latch retracts automatically while the evo2 crane hook opens. This way, it remains hidden, protected and impacts are avoided.
(3 hour charge – 1 week’s power)
The evo2 battery is smaller and lighter than the rest of the range of safety hooks. With the new Eink charge status display system and new electronics, autonomy and consumption are optimized.
Swivel with Bearings
The bearings allow the hook to rotate freely. The operator can lock it at every 90º position.
Clutch Protected Motor
The new evo2 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.
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 evo2 automatic hook incorporates an innovative position encoder. This allows the user to know the exact position of the crane hook, allowing better control. This results in longer motor life and safer operations. The sensor is contactless: no wearings and zero maintenance.
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.
Some other options are available to be configured:
REF.: OPTION S
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.
Void, No Magnets
REF.: OPTION V
No magnetic system.
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.

NEW evo2 Bumper with LEDs
We’ve redesigned the Bumper for our smallest automatic hook, designed to protect the evo2 automatic hook from day-to-day wear.
Material: Flexible polyurethane resin (PUR) with 90 shore A hardness.
This new and updated version of the bumper weighs 2.7kgs. (5.94lbs.)
The new evo2 bumper can withstand temperature ranges of -20ºC to 90ºC / -4ºF to 194ºF
Reinforced battery cover.
Slot for LEDs installation. The High-Brightness LED status indicator is an additional safety measure which shows the lifting hook’s status at all times with a bright 4 colour colour-code scheme visible from the operator’s position.
The new evo2 bumper is valid only for the evo2 automatic hook, and is NOT recommended for ATEX hooks or hooks with counterbalance.
