Control arm display featuring igniter status and burn duration

An igniter was a component of a thruster assembly that ignited fuel as a form of propulsion.

In the 2270s while investigating V'ger in a thruster suit, Commander Spock armed the igniter and enabled the igniter-enable release on his emergency evacuation thruster pack before firing the ten second thruster burn. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture)
