This paper presents the construction and properties of a so-called pendulum actuator used for generating dynamic forces. The discussion illustrates that this type of actuator can potentially cover a wide field of applications. Generating harmonic force signals, however, demands special provisions due to the inherent non-linear kinematics of the actuator device. The paper explains the selected measures and presents the achieved results.
