In the office again.
Recent rules mean that a board should only be populated with components of the same manufacture.

Usually, other makes will fit; and, technically should work.

However, different manufacturers comply with EN60439-3 (annex ZA) in different ways, making it difficult for YOU to prove compliance, unless you stay with the same maker.

As an added point, more aesthetic than anything else: It looks better, in my opinion.

Concur, KME.

But sometimes from a maintenance point of view this is not always possible.
