Hmm .. looks like the 9315 comes in a few wattages .. but not the one you listed ..

 

The manufacturer lists a 200 - 300 .. a 400 - 500 and a 625 - 750 KVA

 

Here is a page with the specs for that model .. scroll down for the rated amperages ..

 

 

http://powerquality.eaton.com/Products-services/Backup-Power-UPS/9315-UPS/9315-200to300-Specs.asp?CX=3

 

The rated amps shown is in the 245 to 360 range .. with a maximum of 480 ... do you have a filter installed ?

 

Thoughts?
