I am new to the world of Arduino and need a little bit of help. I have an Arduino Uno and I am trying to supply 5V to an actuator using the digital pins. It is my understanding that the board I have is capable of doing that. But I can't seem to get 5V from my digital pins.
I would really prefer to not have to use the 5V power pin because I need to supply multiple sources with 5V in an alternating pattern, which I know I can do with the digital pins.
Could I use the analog pins to help with this? Could I supply more power using a battery? Etc.
Thank you in advance.
