Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering
German term or phrase: Sonnenbestrahlung
From the technical specifications for a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system (for railcars):

1.2 Mitgeltende Unterlagen
- UIC 651 nur fuer die Auslegung der Klimaanlage wie *Sonnenbestrahlung* und Passagierlasten

and

2.1 Spezifische Daten der Endwagen A und B
- Fensterflaeche mit *Sonnenbestrahlung* (1 Seite)
- Seitenwandflaeche mit *Sonnenbestrahlung*

I though about using "sun exposure" or "exposure to the sun", but am not quite happy with that...

TIA

disagree  Marnen Laibow-Koser: "Insulation" is incorrect, as Claudia said. And "insolation" may be too unfamiliar a word.
