Wikipedia

  1. igniter

    In pyrotechnics, a pyrotechnic initiator (also initiator or igniter) is a device containing a pyrotechnic composition used primarily to ignite other, more difficult-to-ignite materials, such as thermites, gas generators, and solid-fuel rockets. The name is often used also for the compositions themselves. Pyrotechnic initiators are often controlled electrically (called electro-pyrotechnic initiators), e.g. using a heated bridgewire or a bridge resistor. They are somewhat similar to blasting caps or other detonators, but they differ in that there is no intention to produce a shock wave. An example of such pyrotechnic initiator is an electric match.

The Standard Electrical Dictionary

  1. Igniter

    In arc lamps with fixed parallel carbons of the Jablochkoff type (see Candle, Jablochkoff) a strip of carbon connects the ends of the carbons in the unused candle. This is necessary to start the current. Such strip is called an igniter. It burns away in a very short time when an arc forms producing the light, and lasts, if all goes well, until the candle burns down to its end. Without the igniter the current would not start and no arc would form.
