    Intermatic timer for actuator

    I have a standard dial Intermatic timer. Since I replaced the pump with an Interflo VS, the timer doesn't control anything but there is still power to it.

    I would like to control an actuator with the timer. Is the voltage output from the timer correct for an actuator?

    Not directly. You will need an appropriate transformer. Also, you need a SPDT timer, or a slaved relay, to be able to switch the actuator back and forth between two positions.
