The power of the Proba ripening system

With precision down to the smallest details, the Proba ripening controller regulates essential factors such as temperature, humidity, gas, pressure, and ventilation.
Simplicity, unparalleled quality, and reliability are assured. Additionally, benefit from low energy costs, making VDH the optimal choice for efficient and cost-effective ripening.
With the Proba system, you are guaranteed optimal ripeness and quality of your fruit, every time.

Proba 5 controller and Proba 5 Compact controller

We offer both the Proba 5 and the Proba 5 Compact controller, so you have the choice that best suits your needs. The Proba 5 offers extensive functionality for the most demanding applications, while the Proba 5 Compact is a simpler option for those seeking efficient control with less complexity.

The advantage of an open system

Unlike many PLC systems, our Proba Ripening System is an open system, which means you are not dependent on the installer who programmed the system for you. You are in control of your system and can customize it as you see fit, while also being able to continue using your own installer. This offers you unparalleled flexibility and control.

Easy operation and ripening programs

Our Proba controllers are designed with ease of use in mind. It's surprisingly simple to create different ripening programs and save your specific recipes for reuse. You don't need extensive technical knowledge to take advantage of the advanced features of our system.
