The transformer takes your 110 VAC outlet voltage and converts it into a low-voltage 16.5 VAC power source for the control panel. It's AC in, and AC out, so polarity is not a concern when wiring, either terminal of the transfomer can be wired to either terminal of the control.
Honeywell Transformer

The Vista 20P uses a 16.5 Volt 25 VA transformer. It has a fuse in it's secondary that can easily be blown, the fuse can't be replaced, so you may someday need a replacement transformer. This transformer is a direct replacement for your Vista 10, Vista 15P, and Vista 20P system.
