Hookeye – the mobile camera system
The strength of Hookeye is its flexible use in the case of various visual obstructions. Used as a reversing camera in the morning and later briefly used as a construction site camera, the camera provides valuable help in the afternoon when lifting a bridge and later ensures accident-free and precise loading onto a truck. Everything fast and without great installation effort – no problem!
Thanks to the wireless power supply and data transmission, the system offers not only comfort, efficiency and security, but also a high degree of flexibility, as the camera can be used from one operation to the next within a few minutes. With the camera and monitor system, the machine operator has a complete overview of his environment and a clear view of the load.
Concept Camera operation
Locations of this camera monitor system
The camera monitor system can be used in tower cranes, telescopic cranes, crawler cranes, forklifts, rear view cameras, surveillance cameras and many other comparable areas. In telescopic cranes in particular, the crane operator is dependent on a “moving eye” when lifting expensive loads behind obstacles. Often the driver has been instructed by third parties via a radiotelephone. With the flexible camera system, which can be attached wirelessly to any device within a few minutes, the crane operator has a sufficient view of the crane hook, the lifting equipment, the load and its surroundings. The crane operator has the possibility to zoom and change the angle of view in order to orientate himself optimally and to recognize signals and distances.
The camera functions zoom, pan, record and align to load make Hookeye a flexible aid for precise and safe work on the construction site and in sensitive environments.

In addition to extensive repairs of damage and accidents, the company also offers spare parts and extensive equipment. Köhler uses its many years of expertise to develop and offer tools that make crane work faster, safer and thus also cheaper.
A frequent cause of the accident is a lack of support and insufficient visual contact. Since customers often cannot and do not want to equip all construction machines with camera technology for understandable reasons, a flexible camera has been developed for the benefit of the vehicle fleet, which can be used where a better view accelerates work and above all makes it safer.
