    NSN: 1375-01-415-1235 or 1375-01-442-0939

    Nomenclature: Igniter, Time Blasting Fuse with Shock Tube Capability

    Appearance: Olive Drab plastic tube with shipping plug and weatherproofing plug on one end. Cotter pin and pull ring on the other end.

    Function: Used to ignite time blasting fuse or to initiate the shock tube or M700 Time Fuse of MDI (modern demolitions initiative) blasting caps.

    SHIPPING

    Hazard Class: 1.4 C, UN Serial Number: 0131, Proper Shipping name: Lighters, Fuse

    Configuration:

    Army M81: 5 - M81 Igniters per 6” x 5” x 1.5” Set-Up Box sealed in a barrier bag. 60 Set-Up Boxes placed in a Wood Box to total 300 M81 Igniters per Wood Box. NSN 1375-01-415-1235

    Marine: 5 - M81 Igniters per 6” x 5” x 1.5” Set-Up Box sealed in a barrier bag. 6 Set-Up Boxes placed into a M2A1 can which are then placed into a Wirebound Box to total 60 M81 Igniters per Wirebound Box. NSN 1375-01-442-0939

    The Igniter is used to ignite a cord that carries a detonation charge. To ignite, the firing pin is simply pulled back by the operator and the spring tension created forces the pin forward with enough force to set off the primer. The primer then ignites the shock tube which is secured in the end of the igniter. The shock tube is placed into the item to be detonated.

    Note: MAST can also supply the M60 igniter upon request. The M60 Igniter is the older single use version (M700 Time fuse only). The M81 is dual purpose: it will function either M700 time fuse or shock tube.
