EDA FPGate Server

EDA FPGate Server is application service which provide unified access to fiscal printers. The server is not complied to UnifiedPOS specification, but is made to be simple of use. It is restful web service application which provide unified protocol for access to various fiscal devices (fiscal printers and cash registers). The main goal of FPGate is to separate common programming logic for work with fiscal devices from complexity to manage variety of fiscal devices.

FPGate server is application which provide web API for access to unlimited number of predefined set of fiscal printers. The server contains two main components:

1.Administration (HTML) interface for defining printers and users http://localhost:8182/admin/

2.Application JSON protocol API interface for using printers http://localhost:8182/print/

Current version of FPGate supports following fiscal printers:

  • Tremol full range of fiscal printers via ZFPLabServer (No real tests was made)
  • DATECS FP-800, FP-2000, FP-650, SK1-21F, SK1-31F, FMP-10, FP-550 (Real test was made only on FP2000!)
  • Daisy fiscal printers (No real tests was made)

Current version of FPGate supports following cash registers:

  • Tremol full range of cash registers via ZFPLabServer (Real tests was made with S21)
  • DATECS DP-05, DP-25, DP-35, WP-50, DP-150 (Real tests was made with DP-150)
  • Daisy cash registers (Real tests was made with Compact M)


  • Java Runtime Environment 8.0+
  • Drivers for implemented fiscal printers. For Tremol fiscal devices ZFPLabServer 1902191535 or newer is required.


  1. Download latest release of FPGateSrvInstall.jar from Github.
  2. Start FPGateSrvInstall.jar and complete the process.
  3. Install printer drivers/libraries.
  4. Start FPGate Server with $INSTALL_PATH\bin\FPGateSrv.cmd
  5. Configure server from Control panel and setup user administrator.
  6. Launch browser and go to FPGate server administration (for example: http://localhost:8182/admin/)
  7. Define printers and users.
  8. Defined printers are ready to be used from applications (see examples bellow).


API for access to printers is based on simple JSON-RPC ( application protocol over HTTP/HTTPS. All API calls to services are in form of posting JSON Request object and receiving Response object as result of execution of request.

Request Object

Request Object contains following attributes:

Attribute Type Description
jsonrpc String A String specifying the version of the JSON-RPC protocol. MUST be exactly "2.0".
method String A String containing the name of the method/printer command to be invoked. Method names that begin with the word rpc followed by a period character (U+002E or ASCII 46) are reserved for rpc-internal methods and extensions and MUST NOT be used for anything else.
params Object A Structured value that holds the parameter values to be used during the invocation of the method.
id String An identifier established by the Client that MUST contain a String, Number, or NULL value if included.

'params' object in request contain following attributes:

Attribute Type Description
Printer Object with following attributes
.ID String Unique ID of printer
.Model String Optional name of Printer Model Class (in case of using printer not defined on server)
.Params Object Optional Hash map with printer parameters in form of pairs parameter_name = value
Command String Name of Printer Command
Arguments Array Array of strings with arguments of command

Response Object

Response Object contains following attributes:

Attribute Type Description
jsonrpc String A String specifying the version of the JSON-RPC protocol. MUST be exactly "2.0".
result Object This member exists and is object in case of success. This member doesn't exists in case of error.
error Object This member exists in case of error. When error exists 'result' doesn't exist.
Errors Array List of errors and waring during execution of command
id String It contains the same as the value of the id member in the Request Object.

In case of success 'result' object contains following attributes:

Attribute Type Description
ResultTable Object Hash map result in form Key = Value
ErrorCode Integer Error code of last executed command (Depend of Command and specific printer implementation)
Messages Array List of messages in process of executing command
Errors Array List of errors and waring during execution of command
Log Array Detailed log of execution of command

In case of error 'error' object contains following attributes:

Attribute Type Description
code Number A Number that indicates the error type that occurred.
message String A String providing a short description of the error.
data Object An object with same structure as 'result'. This contains particular information to the the point of error is occurred.

Web Appication Javascript Library

For simplifying implementation in web applications there is Javascript Library fpg-client.js which encapsulate protocol in useful objects. Here is example request:

    var fpg = new FPGate({
        URL: 'https//localhost:8183/print/'
        , Printer: new FPGPrinter({
    var args = 
        'SON\tOperator Name\n' +
        'STG\tProduct of tax group B\tB\t0.12\t0\n' +
        'STG\tProduct of tax group A\tA\t0.25\t0\n' +
        'PFT\tSample fiscal text\n' +
        'STL\n' +
        'TTL\tTotal:\tCASH\t2.00\n' +
        'FTR\tThank you!\n' +

    fpg.sendRequest(new FPGRequest({
        Command: 'PrintFiscalCheck'
        , Arguments : args.split('\\n')
        , onRequestComplete: function(data, textStatus) {
            try {
                var resultData = null;
                if ('result' in data && data.result) {
                    resultData = data.result;
                } else if ('error' in data && typeof data.error == 'object' && 'data' in data.error) {
                    resultData =;
                if ('result' in data && data.result) {
                    var resultData = data.result.resultTable;
                    // LastPrintDocNum
                    f['FPData[FPDocNum]'].value = ('LastPrintDocNum' in resultData)?resultData.LastPrintDocNum:'N/A';
                    f['FPData[SerialNum]'].value = ('LFRI_DocNum' in resultData)?resultData.LFRI_DocNum:'N/A';
                    // LFRI_DateTime
                    f['FPData[FPDocDate]'].value = ('LFRI_DateTime' in resultData)?resultData.LFRI_DateTime:'';
                } else if ('error' in data && data.error) {
                    for (var i in {
                            f.elements['Errors'].value +=[i]+'\n';
                } else {
                    alert('Missing Result!');
            } catch (err) {

Get printer date and time.


Set printer date and time. The command accepts optional argument DateTime where date and time is in following format 'yyyy-mm-dd HH:nn:ss'. If DateTime argument is omitted the current date and time of system will be used.


Get printer status information. The result is dependent of printer model.
