The construction and properties of three sets of two-dimensional scintillating fiber detector arrays for tracking of charged particles used in the HypHI Phase 0 experiment at GSI will be reported in this paper. The position resolutions and the detection efficiency of detectors have been obtained for each layer of detectors by using 6Li primary beams and particles with Z = 1 produced by fragment reactions of 136Xe projectiles on the hydrogen target. Besides, the response of energy deposition of charged particles in the first detector set placed right behind the target has been studied by using light projectile fragments with Z = 1, 2 and 3 produced by 58Ni and 12C beams. Extracted resolutions for energy deposition and position as well as the detection efficiency fulfill the requirements of the HypHI Phase 0 experiment.
