Updating Richdel to B.Hyve

Hello, my current system is a Richdel 446PR. I purchased the B.Hyve 6 zone system. The Richdel has 2 wires that attach to the 24v AC. Those wires run to a transformer in the box. My question is, will I still need that transformer with the new system, or does it not need it? I'll attach a picture of the system below.

I googled and saw a picture of one that said, indoor/outdoor. It just plugs into the wall.
Which means the transformer's built inside the controller.
