How wide of a tempurature range? Is it going to go below freezing? Because I can think of a few options for very warm applications but very cold applications is more difficult.
The unit will need to operate in the temp range of -40 to +80 C.
How about installing your favorite VMS on a Panasonic ToughBook? Something like this would be slick.
Why not to use NEMA Enclosure with fan & heater ?
Check out Stealth computers. They have weather proof and wide teampature PC's.
Here is a project I worked on. We had a small strip heater installed for the colder weather and the PC is just a standard fanless atom.
Also u can get coolers based on Peltier effect and install them inside Nema boxes
Dotworkz use them
just talk to Adlink
Their HPERC-IBR-MC High Performance Extreme Rugged™ Coldplate Mount System with Intel® Core™ i7 Processor
start from about $ 8000 +
I am in wrong business :)
Guys, if you put one of those ADLink PCs in an enclosure, all it's going to do is transfer heat from the PC case TO THE ENCLOSURE. It's like saying "My server room doesn't need to be cooled, my server has a fan!" The entire enclosure needs to be heated and cooled. I'm assuming there will need to be switches and transformers, and whatever ancillary equipment, as well.
How many cameras will be connected to this NVR? 1... 4... 8?

I can't thank the contributors enough, especially Brian, as I now feel intellectually equipped to argue that latent effects of Entropy on world peace and stability can be measured. Thanks, Brian!
"Entropy (usual symbol S) is a measure of the specific ways in which a thermodynamic system may be arranged, often taken to be a measure of disorder, or a measure of progressing toward thermodynamic equilibrium". Who knew?
