    Personally I'd want to buy my wago connectors from a reputable distributor, I know there are clones in circulation and I wouldn't trust third party amazon sellers to send me genuine wagos.

    Thanks

    Don’t forget you may need Wagolite boxes to put the connectors in!

    I'm not sure I see the point of the wagobox lite, unlike the other wagobox models it's not maintenance free.

    If you don't need MF you can put wagos in any normal electrical enclosure, if you do need MF then i'd go for the wagobox 221-4 (especially for the OP who has already bought 221-4xx series connectors)

    Yes, that’s surprising isnt it:rolleyes:
    The WAGOBOX and WAGOBOX Light junction boxes meet BS EN 60670-01 and BS EN 60670-22.

    This document details which combinations of Wago connectors + Wago boxes are certified as MF.

    We have often discussed this!

    Unless I'm missing it, I cannot see any claims about "certified as MF" (nor any suggesting as to who might doing any such 'certifying'). All I see, for four of the products, is a statement such as "... Suitable for MF applications when using WAGO's 222 & 773 series.".

    Have you seen more about this 'certifying'?

    Kind Regards, John
