  The real-time software for the Beam Loss Monitoring Systems (BLM) configures, instruments, optimizes and protects the machine in the framework of CERN’s LHC Injectors Upgrade (LIU). Initially designed to fulfil the needs of the new LINAC4 linear accelerator, the software has evolved during CERN’s LS2 to cover the additional requirements of the Proton Synchrotron Booster (PSB) and Proton Synchrotron (PS) accelerators, as well as all the interconnecting transfer lines up to the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS), and the PS East Experiment Area. This paper outlines how the software has been designed to cover all these needs, while maintaining a homogenous software core. It will highlight the challenges in achieving this goal, as well as detailing how the special cases in the PS and TT10 transfer line were specifically addressed.
