In this paper, the complete shaking force and moment balancing conditions for a special class of planar 5R linkages, the contra 5R linkage, is considered. Contra 5R linkages are planar 5R linkages in which the two input links are mechanically coupled and rotate at the same speed in opposite directions. A method to derive necessary and sufficient conditions on the design parameters to achieve moment balancing without introducing additional components is presented. Using this method, a complete classification of all shaking force and moment balanced contra 5R linkages is given.
