A few observations:
1. It is not wired to code for outside service. It's doesn't appear to have water tight fittings or a rain tight box with a lip extending past the
door to keep water out, and they would have had to drill the cabinet to put bolts through into t-nuts that is used to mount the box to the unistrut
that spans horizontally from what appears to be copper pipe. Again not water tight. Copper pipe mounting odd and not to code. It should have had a
nema 4 box. I couldn't see if it had a handle on the right side facing the box as to make it a disconnect (Safety switch). If it was nema 4
fiberglass box then it could have been used for RFID, and had nuts cast into the back of the box so there would be no drilling.
2. Doubt it is used for RFID that usually requires a separate antenna mounted outside of a steel enclosure. My experience would be it would look like
a fiberglass square about 1/2"thk. X 10" sq. mounted at an angle facing the vehicle about 6 to 7 feet off of the ground with the tag on the
windshield bottom right corner driver side.
3. The thing that looks like what is called a weatherhead has an additional flange that appears to be at the wrong angle from the centerline of the
mounting pipe and appears to be to bubulus . Seems more like a vent cover. The photo doesn;t have enough detail.
4. The size of the conduit suggest large power cable, or large bundle of data/communication cable.
5. As far as the fire extinguisher, this suggest to me that they use this as a remote location to do something above ground with the possibility of
fire, the next time you get a chance look to see the type by letter code (Class). A, B, C, D this would indicate what type of fire they expect.
6. The bottom of the large conduit is wrapped in whats called gas tape, that protects the metal from the corrosive effects of the lye in the concrete.
7. Concrete pad size? Large enough for a car/truck or equipment?
Just my 2 cents.
