The Pentairpool valve actuators, like 263045, are operated by 24 VAC. I have tried to find detailed info regarding how they work from an electrical point of view, but no info from Pentairpool, nor on other web sites.
They come with 3 wires. Now my question is how to connect them.
Is there a zero wire and two wires, e.g. one for each direction? Or is one wire only ground and 2 wires are used for 24 VAC. Or is there an automatic stop and reverse mechanism in the actuator.
Answers are welcome as I have to plan for the size of the pipe and number of wires I need per actuator and how many relays to operate the actuator. I also need a fair estimate of the current that an actuator will draw from the power supply.
Note: I didn't ask Pentairpool yet as I have still no answer from them on my first question from 2 weeks ago, although they promised me to react within a few days.
