Sun simulation

Solar radiation has a very high energy content. The long-wave components provide the heating for the irradiated body and can cause overheating problems.

The short-wave components have a destructive effect. Tests with solar simulation are recommended for all products which are operated outdoors, or are indirectly exposed to the sun.
