Migrate Serial-to-Ethernet Devices from VxWorks to Erlang
We've long supported a variety of RS232 devices in the field with serial to ethernet conversion boxes, which were then connected to Acnet via several vxworks front-ends. Most of these are ideal candidates for moving to erlang because they don't require any external libraries, just some simple ascii query sending and response parsing over UDP or TCP.
We don't have to convert existing devices all at once, but we should support new devices in erlang and begin migrating older ones as time allows. We have a new request for additional serial-ethernet sensors from cryo (see issue #18469 )
