I'm in the market for an ESD workbench mat and some grounding tools.
1.I've seen some mats ranging in price from a few dollars to well over $100. So, what should one look for when buying a static dissipative mat?
2. Ideal industries sell a Stat-Gard ESD Grounding Kit that includes a circuit tester. Is this investment necessary (read: worth it) to ensure a good ground?http://www.idealindustries.com/tm/ElectricalTesters.nsf/ElectricalTesters?OpenFrameSet
