Create a DIM interface exposing dummy values to the DCS

Laurent Petre requested to merge feature/dim-interface into develop


This MR introduces a DIM interface that is used to expose to the DCS various values retrieved from the hardware (i.e. voltages and temperatures). At the moment only dummy values are exposed for all links in the hardware layout tree that have a non-empty dim service parameter.

Related Issue
