Throughput of a fiber-robot-based multi-object spectrograph depends on the accuracy and precision of the fiber position system. An efficient and accurate method of quantifying the performance of an actuator is necessary during the design iteration process, final design, and for post-production characterization. A CCD camera-based optical setup was developed at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to test these parameters of fiber robot positioners. The setup is described, as well as tests used to quantify distortion and cross-check measurement by smart scope.
