Type 7810-A
Enables you to calculate plus-sized models for industry, road, rail and wind turbines. All methods supported by Predictor and LimA are included, including the CNOSSOS method. Acoustic Determinator is included to ease creation of sources with real life noise data. The Standard Plus configuration is the ideal and complete configuration for authorities, consultants, wind farm developers and educational institutes who are doing assessment and impact studies for larger areas.
Type 7810-B
Enables you to calculate advanced-sized models for industry, road, rail and wind turbines. All methods supported by Predictor and LimA are included, including the CNOSSOS method. Acoustic Determinator is included to ease creation of sources with real life noise data. The advanced configuration is the ideal and complete configuration for authorities and consultants who are doing assessment and nose mapping studies for large city wide areas. The advanced configuration is the preferred configuration for creating EU strategic noise maps.
Type 7810-C
Enables you to calculate plus-sized models for industry, road, rail and wind turbines. All methods supported by Predictor, except for the CNOSSOS method, are included such as ISO 9613, CRTN, Harmonoise, NMPB-2008 and RMR. The Basic Plus configuration is the ideal configuration for consultants and wind farm developers who are doing assessment and impact studies for larger areas.
Type 7810-I
Enables you to calculate standard-sized models for industry, road, rail and wind turbines. All methods supported by Predictor, except for the CNOSSOS method, are included such as ISO 9613, CRTN, Harmonoise, NMPB-2008 and RMR. The Basic configuration is the ideal configuration for consultants and wind farm developers who are doing assessment and impact studies for smaller areas.
Type 7810-G
Enables you to calculate standard-sized models for industry, road, rail and wind turbines. All methods supported by Predictor and LimA are included, including the CNOSSOS method. The Standard configuration is the ideal and complete configuration for authorities, consultants, wind farm developers and educational institutes who are doing assessment and impact studies for smaller areas.

Georeference
Georeference is used to calibrate bitmaps for use on local coordinate systems. After the bitmap is calibrated, it can be used directly in Predictor as a background map. This enables quick creation of impressive models that geometrically fit in with other models and data.
LimA Aircraft Module BZ-5441
Enables calculation of aircraft noise in accordance with ECAC Doc. 29 and the German AzB method, and allows simulation of a moving point source.
Calculation Client BZ-5552
Enables Predictor-LimA Advanced Type 7810-B calculation licenses with 4-core support on two additional workstations within the same network environment as the main Predictor-LimA package, for increased calculation speed of large and very large models.
4-core Support for Predictor-LimA Plus BZ-5703
Enables four cores for calculation on a single PC running Predictor-LimA Plus Type 7810-A for increased calculation speed.
4-core Support for Predictor-LimA Advanced BZ-5704
Enables four cores for calculation on a single PC running Predictor-LimA Advanced Type 7810-B or Calculation Client BZ/5552, for increased calculation speed of large models.
8-core Support BZ-5890
Enables eight cores for calculation on a single PC running Predictor-LimA Advanced Type 7810-B or Calculation Client BZ/5552, for increased calculation speed of large models.
LimA Graphical User Interface BZ-5700
Enables use of LimA on a second computer for the creation and viewing of models and results created using the main Predictor-LimA software suite.
