In the past, Fibox has been a good choice in my experience. They can be spec'd to lock and for IP66+ ingress protection, and the polycarbonate models stand up to UV exposure well.
The other factor to consider is temperature; both heat and cold. You didn't mention this, and it may not be a big issue, but enclosures generally do not include active cooling or heating.
At that point, something like a Dotworkz housing (that includes room for a small NVR) might be a fit.
Another supplier is L-com. They have fiberglass lockable enclosures with AC outlets, aluminum back boards with Din rail connectivity and cooling fans. Here's an example 14x12x7 no fan
18x6 with fan
Well when I have similar setups I use internal flash storage so I dont have to worry about the NVR and what happens to it. Main reason was for parking booths/lots. the booth wouldn't have AC or adequate cooling in the summer time and they would melt and fail.
To get around this I started using a more expensive camera and going straight flash storage. I have several Panasonic WV-SFV631L's each with 256GB internal storage watching the gates and capturing vehicles coming and going. I am sure there are other brands out there that can offer the same thing or something similar. The only thing I would say is if you Need the LPR analytic, I dont know if some of the higher end cameras offer them on the camera end I know Panasonic doesn't. my next guess would be AXIS maybe?
I would say having an point for onsite access in one of these enclosures for servicing would be a good idea though.
This is what I needed! Thanks to all who responded... I knew I could count on you guys.
