There's nothing wrong with "RS-485-compliant." The first hyphen is part of the noun "RS-485," the second forms a phrasal adjective.
This isn't really grammar, it's an arbitrary punctuation rule that varies from one style guide to another. Some might use en dashes instead of hyphens. Are you sure you want "connects to" rather than simply "connects"?
