D24V50F5 5v 5A Efficieny

I am using the D24V50F5 5V 5A regulator in a low power application and having a difficult time reading the efficiency curves supplied.

VIN = 14.3 volts
Output current : 155 mA to 322 mA

My best guess, from the chart, is 75 to 85% efficiency. Can you provide the efficiency at those to output currents?

Thanks,
Bill

Hello.

I think you will probably get around 85% efficiency, although it will depend on your exact operating conditions, and there generally is more room for variation from unit to unit at low currents like that.
