Solar Radiation.........
.
The sunshine test is conducted to determine the effect of solar radiation energy on equipment in the Earth's atmosphere. For the purpose of this test, only the terrestrial portion of the solar spectrum is considered. The limits and energy levels provide the simulated effects of natural sunshine. The sunshine tests are applicable to equipment which may be exposed to solar radiation during service or unsheltered storage at the Earth's surface or in the lower atmosphere. Outdoor items susceptible to solar radiation such as paints, plastics, labels and protective coatings can show the effects of overheating, cracking, fading, blistering and warping.
