It's needed for every workshop in Germany.;

Assumed it shouldn't be needed in other countries, it's anyway common
that engineers only work on gear connected to the mains by galvanic
isolation _in all countries_. You won't spend 50,-€ to save lives ;)?

Btw. usually it's an adjustable transformer, because a German workshop
needs to be able to transform the 230V to e.g. 120V for gear build for
the USA etc..
