HookCam on Hook Block

HookCam Product Snapshot – ENR

By: Jeff Rubenstone, Engineering News-Record

The Generation Five model of the HookCam attaches directly to the hook block of the crane and wirelessly streams video of the load to the operator. During a lift, the camera offers the operator a clearer view of the load and the surrounding area. The Generation Five model features several improvements over earlier HookCams, such as a more adaptable mounting system, solar battery charging and options for “black box”-style recording. This model is lighter than earlier models and can be mounted on a range of cranes. While no substitute for a ground spotter, the HookCam offers additional visual feedback for tower-crane operators with restricted views.
