This item includes the transformer, but still uses the battery. The battery must be used along with the transformer. You cannot use the transformer alone.

If you download the installation manual you will find on page 10 Technical Specifications. The opener is powered by a 12 VDC marine battery. Battery charge is maintained from one of two methods. A 120VAC, 18VAC output indoor transformer connected to the opener OR a solar panel sold by GTO. The transformer can not be located more than 1000 feet of wire away from opener.
There are no instructions for powering the opener without a battery. To ensure you will not void your warranty you should call 800 543 1236 and tech support can answer your questions.
