Orbit Controler With Indexing Valve

As you may have guessed, I installed an Orbit Water Master #57196 in place of an old pin timer. I see now that I didn't do enough homework as these controllers typically need to control independent valves. I have the old indexing valve and need to know if it's possible to make these compatible. Evidently I need a pause between zones but I'm not sure the controller is capable. I'm trying to save money so the least expensive route? Thank you so much! Steve

If you can program a delay between zones activating, say at least a minute, then you can run an indexing valve with your controller.
