If people of ordinary skill know what an actuator is and how it works it should be enough to just draw and label an "actuator" and in the description you can say "in preferred embodiments the actuator is an electric actuator"

If I wish to claim as below,
 1. A device comprising an actuator.
 2. The device of claim 1, wherein the actuator is an electric actuator.

Then, do I have to draw both of the "actuator" and "electric actuator" ?
Or, would it be enough for me to draw "electric actuator", which is a kind of "actuator"?

thank you!
