New Linear Solenoids

Just ordered some new linear solenoids. The one I have used so far, becomes to hot when active over 10 seconds. It can happen when a car is deslotted before one of the the two reset slotted optical switches are activated . They consume 1.100 mA! despite they are marked 800 mA at 12VDC, the new ones consume only 300 mA – i hope 🙂
