The National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) is developing, at the Laboratory of Accelerators and Applied Superconductivity (LASA Milan, Italy), five families of corrector magnets, from skew quadrupole up to dodecapole order, which will be installed in the interaction regions of the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (LHC). These magnets are based on a superferric design, which allows a relatively simple, compact and easy-to-construct magnets. This activity takes place within the framework of a collaboration agreement between CERN and INFN. The magnets have been designed and prototype units have been built and tested for the sextupole, octupole, and decapole orders. Magnetic measurements have been performed in order to characterize the field quality, and to validate the design and construction. This paper presents the instruments and the approach for the magnetic measurements on the prototype magnets. Moreover, the results of measurements at cryogenic temperature, up to the nominal field level, are reported. The magnetic field quality, in terms of transfer function and field multipoles, is analysed as function of the excitation level. The iron saturation effects, which are a major concern of the selected design, are compared with the 3-D magnetic calculations and discussed in view of the construction of the series magnets to be integrated in the corrector package assembly.
