If you want to stay HES:
The A1001 puts out power at 12 VDC, so the HES 5000 series (mortise, not rim) at 240 mA should meet the requirement.
As far as the general practice of powering strikes with pass-thru controller power, one aspect is that low-draw strikes tend to be more sensitive/vulnerable to deficiencies in door/frame alignment.
A higher draw strike may have the juice needed to avoid binding or pre-loading (where contact between the lock latch and strike keeper interferes with the keeper unlatching), but the low draw models sometimes lack the 'kick' needed to blast through that stuff.
However, as far as general practice, it is pretty routine to use pass-thru power and it prove reliable.
