Avoid pendulum motion

  1. Mar 19, 2015 #1
    Hi Clever People,

    Is there any method or gyro to prevent pendulum motion of an object when lowering it using a cable and a winch? I am doing a home projects and the motion is a big problem.

    Thank you in advance.

    You could attach a cable to both ends of the object, or attach it to a shaft, like an elevator.

    You can also use a vertical guide wire, which is tensioned between top and bottom, and the load is attached to it using something like a bow shackle which can easily slide.

    Move the suspension point rapidly to correct for motion of the load?
