Dissipative ESD Mats

  1. Feb 2, 2014 #1
    I was reading up on ESD mats.
    I don't understand how the dissipative mat works. Does it just dissipate ESD as heat.
    But the mat needs to be connected to ground potential. This would make it similar to conductive mats, correct?

    esd mats just ground static discharge no heat involved.

    ESD mats ARE high resistance conductive mats. they are one in the same
