Disabling isobus on a MF datatronic screen?

Is this possible on an older style non-touchscreen datatronic? I want to run my drill through a topcon screen. If I turn on the datatronic screen first that’s where the drill appears. If I turn on the topcon screen first the drill loads on that, but the main tractor screen doesn’t then load on the datatronic meaning that I can’t set up any tractor functions.

On an Isobus network each universal terminal must have its own "UT number". You normally then have the option within the implement controller to set the "preferred UT number". This means that the implement will load on whichever screen you have chosen.
What Topcon screen do you have, and what drill controller?

Double tap the escape button?

It’s an XD+ screen, the drill also has a topcon controller, would have to check for exact details.

You can check the UT number on the console by going to the menu "system/isobus/UT".
Then if you have a Topcon Artemis drill Control, scroll to the settings page and you will have a soft key which looks like a screen with 6 buttons down either side - press that. You should then see your preferred instance settings. Make sure that the preferred ut instance is the same as the ut number on the xd+.

go to home, choose spanner, then terminal settings, then isobus setup, highlight isobus terminal functions, turn to off, then crack on.

As @HCC mentions, the screen you are looking for within ISOBUS Artemis is this one:

I had issues using a Horsch drill with a Muller control box, Trimble GFX screen doing variable rate and the Datatronic screen on a 7626.
The datatronic screen kept messing things up despite being told to ignore the Isobus plug (as above).
Eventually we unplugged the Isobus harness from the datatronic system, and since then have had no troubles. Massey electronics at their best!
 
To get to this required a visit from Massey, Trimble and Horsch all together to get to the bottom of it, as otherwise all you would get is "its not our equipment that is the trouble!"

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
