We designed, developed, fabricated, and tested an opto-electronic system to test alignment of CPV solar system
modules that is portable and robust to implement as a step in the assembly line. In addition to the components used
in systems employed previously, we implement a thin prism in four orientations in a plane normal to optical axis of
the unit under test. Its advantage is robustness against its positioning and orientation errors.
