Why Is My Electronic Latch Retraction Blowing Fuses On My Altronix Power Supply?

After all my years in the business this is my first attempt at the electronic latch retraction type locksets. Glass storefront door with the vertical rods. Triggered by crash bar . Ordered the retrofit kit from the manufacturer installed easily. First tried it with a 2 Amp altronix which was underpowered the solenoid would engage but only successfully fully retract about one out of every four tries. Brought in an AlTronics Al 1024 ulx PD8 which is rated at 10 amps. It worked but after three or four attempts the fuse is blown. I'm using 18/2 wire could that be the culprit?.
