Using the analogue neural circuit of maximal value signals from signal set identification is proposed for information retrieval in data sets. The circuit is fast, it has simple structure and can be implemented in a modern hardware. A resolution of the circuit is theoretically infinite and it is not dependent on a value of its parameter. An average time necessary for trajectory convergence of the circuit state variable to a steady state is not dependent on a dimension of input data. The results of numerical experiments obtained on the base of the data set provided by PageRank algorithm are presented. These results give witness of the circuit using for information search in data sets.
