If you are able to provide a momentary signal to open and another momentary signal to close through the remote inputs on the linear actuator controller it would be possible to use the actuator with a timer.

Question

Can you adjust to actuator with controller or just go to preset settings with this controller.   In other words, have your presets and then adjust to another length with same controller without loosing presets.

Info in manual says you can do this. The presets are selected by 1 button and to advance the unit forward you push two buttons and retract. The presets are done using just one button. So yes you can select the preset then move forward beyond the preset without losing the preset.

No, the actuator must have a feed-back encoder.

The quick answer to your question is "no". Take a look at the pdf wiring drawing for the controller and you'll see 5 wires going to the actuator; red, black, blue, green and yellow. Red/black are the power wires, the other 3 wires are the position encoder that tells the controller what the position of the actuator is. Without that position signal the controller can't control the actuator. The importer, Concentric International, does sell some actuators that have the encoder, but none of them are in Northern Tools lineup.
