Let me start off with conceding that I am a novice with arduino and also fairly new to these forums so I apologize if this question has been asked before.
I am quite simply trying interface arduino with this 5-wire actuator (http://www.gallotech.com/DoorActuatorInstallationManual061008.pdf
page 2 for pinout.).
I know the 5v output on arduino isn't going to work for this actuator so I have it connected to a 12v battery.
I have the black wire from the actuator set up plugged into the ground on arduino.
From here I'm not quite sure where to go to get the actuator able to receive signals from arduino, any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
