The LIPAc accelerator will be a 9 MeV, 125 mA CW deuteron accelerator which aims to validate the technology that will be used in the future IFMIF accelerator. Several types of Beam Position Monitors –BPM’s- are placed in each section of the accelerator to ensure a good beam transport and minimize beam losses. Prototypes of almost all the BPM’s have been already fabricated. Acceptance tests have been carried out on each device. The output of the vacuum leak tests and electrical tests will be analyzed in this contribution. In addition, the test bench to characterize the BPM’s has been upgraded and validated using some prototypes in order to obtain a better global measurement accuracy of the electrical center offset. The test bench can be used to crosscheck the simulations with the real response of each BPM. The result of the comparison will be discussed in detail.
